This third and last volume of tlie Persian Catalogue consists of two distinct parts. 
The first completes the descriptive portion of the Catalogue. It contains notices of 
461 MSS., which, added to the contents of the first two volumes, brings up the total of 
MSS. described to 2536. 

Of these 461 volumes a large proportion, consisting of the first 429 numbers, 
belong to the Elliot Collection, which relates almost exclusively to Indian history, and 
was purchased in the year 1878. They have been dealt with as a separate group, and 
are arranged on a plan similar to that of the preceding part of the catalogue. 

The remaining thirty-two volumes are recent acquisitions from various sources. 
They have been described in numerical order (pp. 1062 to 1075). 

The second part of the volume comprises five appendices to the whole catalogue. 
They are : — 

1. Additions and Corrections, p. 1077. These are complementary notices 
resulting, for the most part, from the accession of fresh material, together with some 
emendations of oversights and of typographical errors. 

2. Index of Titles, p. 1099. The titles are given in the original character; and 
the list is not confined to works extant in the collection; but, in addition, it includes 
both the works referred to by writers themselves, either as their authorities or as 
previous compositions of their own, and also those which are ascribed to them by 
biographers, as far as such works are incidentally mentioned in the catalogue. Refer- 
ences of the former and more important class will be easily distinguished by means of 
the heavier type of the numerical figures. 

3. Index of Persons' Names, p. 1137. This index comprises authors and their 
patrons, translators, celebrated calligraphers, and generally aU persons noticed in the 
catalogue, without, however, including the sovereigns whose names occur only in the 
statement of the contents of historical works. With a view to facilitate research, dates 
have been added wherever they could be ascertained or approximately determined. 





4. Classed Index, p. 1187. Altliougli the system of classification adopted in tlie 
first two volumes of the catalogue embraces the great hulk of the Persian MSS., it not 
seldom happens that works treating of the same or kindred subjects are noticed far 
apart from each other. This arises partly from the not inconsiderable number of MSS. 
of mixed and often heterogeneous contents, partly from the fact that recent acquisitions 
have been separately described in the third volume. The object of the classed index is 
to remedy this inconvenience, and to exhibit in one view under their respective classes, 
and, as far as possible, in chronological sequence, all the works extant in the collection. 

5. Numerical Index, p. 1209. The numbers, or numerical designations, of the 
MSS. of the several collections or series are here given in arithmetical order, with 
reference to the pages of the catalogue where they are described. 






The above-mentioned total of 2536 MSS. described in this catalogue includes some 
which, although containing Persian texts, might with equal or better right be claimed 
for the Arabic or Turkish collection, and also a few Persian documents of small extent 
and little import which occur in miscellaneous volumes. But, after subtracting such 
doubtful elements, it will be found that the Persian collection does not fall far short of 
2500 volumes, while the number of Arabic MSS. does not reach 2000, and every other 
collection of Oriental MSS. in the Museum is far below that amount. 

The Persian collection may be said to be a creation of the present century, for at 
the close of the last it hardly amounted to 150 volumes. Considering the long and 
intimate connexion of England with India, one might naturally suppose that it came 
chiefly from the latter country. Eor a considerable portion of it, such is undoubtedly 
the fact; and, indeed, the numerous class of MSS. appertaining to that luxuriant 
branch of Persian literature which flourished in India could hardly have any other 
place of origin. 

On the other hand, it will be presently seen that the most extensive and valuable 
addition ever made to our Persian library came from the western borders of Iran, and 
that several others are derived from Persia proper, while even those collections which 
were formed in India comprise a considerable number of MSS. originally written in 

We now enter upon the grateful task of recording the names of the chief con- 
tributors to the Persian collection, placing in the first rank the eminent man to whom 
the credit is due of having laid the true foundation of our Oriental library in the four 
branches of Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Syriao literatures. 



Claudius James Eich, bom in Dijon in tlao year 1787, and educated in Bristol, 
evinced from boyliood an eager taste and exceptional aptitude for linguistic acquire- 
ments. Having obtained an appointment in the East-India Company's Service, he 
embarked for the East in 1804, and during a stay of some years in Turkey, Egypt, and 
India made himself a complete master of the leading languages of Asia. 

In 1808 he was appointed Eesident at Baghdad, and applied himself with untiring 
energy to the collecting of Oriental MSS. His success was such that, after the lapse of 
four years, he found himself in possession of no less than 392 volumes in Arabic, 
Persian, and Turkish. A catalogue of these, drawn up in Latin by himself, was sent to 
Vienna, and puhlished in the Mines de I'Orient, vol. iii., p. 328, and vol. iv., pp. Ill, 
288, 455. 

After his return from a visit to Europe, in 1813, Eich added largely to his collection, 
which is justly termed by his biographer"- the most extensive ever brought together by 
any private person in tlie East. The disturbed state of Baghdad, which culminated in 
an attack upon the Eesidency, compelled him in 1820 to remove to Basrah, and thence 
to Shiraz, where he was carried off hy cholera on the 5th of October, 1821, at the early 
age of thirty-four. 

His collection of MSS., which was purchased for the Museum by Act of Parliament 
in 1825, consists of 802 volumes, which now bear the numbers 7141—7942 in the series 
of Additional MSS. They fall under the following heads : 390 Arabic, 230 Persian, 
110 Turkish, 65 Syriao and Carshunic, 3 Armenian, 3 Greek, and 1 Hebrew. 

A table printed at the end of the Numerical Index, p. 1228, shows the cor- 
respondence of the original nos. of Eich's Persian MSS. as they appear in the Mines 
de I'Orient, with those which they have received in the Museum. 

Four more Persian MSS., Eich's latest acquisitions, which had been reserved by 
his widow, were, shortly after her death in 1879, presented to the Trustees by his son- 
in-law, Claude Erskine, Esq. They are now designated Oriental MSS. 2194—2197. 

The Eich Collection covers the entire field of Persian literature. It abounds in 
early copies of standard writers, and includes works of great rarity, some previously 
unknown. The limits of our space will allow us to mention only a few of the most 
remarkable, referring for further details to the pages of the catalogue : — 

mstorij. Jami' ut-Tavarikh, by Eashid ud-Din, a bulky folio from the library of 
Shahrukh, the son of Timur (p. 74).— Mavrdiib Ilahl, a history of the Muzaflfaris, by 
Mu'in Yazdi (p. 108).— History of Tabaristan, by Ibn Isfandiyar (p. 202).— Taj ul- 
Ma'agir, by Hasan Nizami, dated A.H. 711. (p. 239).— Tarikh i Sadr i Jahan, a history 

» A trief uotice of the life of Eich by aa anonymous friend is prefixed to his " Narratiye of a residence in 
Koordistan and on the site of ancient Nineveh," edited by his widow, London, 1836. Another posthumous work 
of Eicli entitled "Narrative of a Journey to the site of Babylon in 1811, with two memoirs on its ruins, and a 
narrative of a Journey to Persepolis," was also edited by his widow, London, 1839.

described by Rich as "a relick of the great Sefiviyan library" (p. 660). — Three poems 
in Guran (pp. 728 — 733). This language, whicli Rich took for a variety of Kurdish, 
proves to be a genuine Persian dialect, which, although in an advanced stage of phonetic 
decay, has preserved some curious archaic forms.

(p. 8). — Makamat i Hamidi, a copy of the 13th century (p. 747). — Al-Faraj Ba'd ash-

ul-Kulfib, a collection of tales, by Barkhwurdar circa A.H. 1050 (pp. 707, 1093). 

While Rich was residing at Baghdad, Persia was visited by a man, some years his 
senior, who has left a greater mark in liistory. Major-General Sie John Malcolm, who 
was born in 1769 and died in 1833, is no less known by his distinguished services in 
war and diplomacy than by his literary productions. The principal of these are his 



History of Persia, which was published in 1815, and remains to this day the standard work 
on that subject, and his still more popular Sketches of Persia, which appeared in 1827/ 

Malcolm was twice sent by the Governor-General of India on political missions to 
the Court of Teheran, in the years 1800 and 1810, and was received on both occasions 
with marked regard by Path "Ali Shah, with whom he became a special favourite. 
Being an accomplished Persian scholar and a passionate lover of Pirdausi and other 
classical poets, he availed himself of his rare opportunities to secure some exceptionally 
fine copies of their works. 

His collection of forty-seven volumes (now designated Add. 21109 — 21118, 27236 
— 27275), partly of Persian, partly of Indian origin, was purchased of his son, General 
George A. Malcolm, in two separate 23ortions, in the years 1802 and 1865. It includes 
some MSS. which originally belonged to Malcolm's brother-in-law, Sir John Macdonald 


The latter, who had been residing some years in the Carnatio as Political Agent at 
the Court of the Navvab, accompanied Sir John Malcolm on his second mission to 
Persia. He was subsequently appointed Minister at the Court of Teheran, and died at 
his post in 1831 (see p. 391). He is the author of a " Geographical Memoir of the 
Persian Empire," London, 1813, and of a " Journey through Asia Minor, Armenia, and 
Koordistan,'' London, 1818. 

To Sir John Malcolm are due — 

A richly illuminated Shahnamah of the 16th century (p. 530). 

Another copy remarkable for the copiousness of its text, which was the main source 
of Lumsden's edition (p. 537). 

Two illuminated copies of the Khamsah of Nizami (pp. 571, 860), the latter of 
which, dated A.H. 821, contains, in addition, the Khamsah of Amir Ivhusrau, and the 
rare Gul u NaurUiz of Jalal Tabib. 

A splendid MS. of the Biistan of Sa'di, written by the poet and calligrapher Rukn 
ud-Din Masud, and dated at Agra, A.H. 1039 (p. 603). 

The curious and exquisitely ornamented volume described as a pocket-library, 
written A.H. 813 for Mirza Iskandar, grandson of Timur and Viceroy of Pars (p. 868). 

The presentation copies of two works dedicated to Malcolm, Tashrili ul-Akvam 
(p. 65), and Tazkirat ul-IJmara, (p. 302), both profusely illuminated by Hindu artists. 

A history of Aka Muhammad Kajar, by Muhammad Sfiru'i (p. 199). 

The MSS. which bear the name of Kinneir are all historical, and appear to have 
been presented to that gentleman by 'Azim ud-Daulah, Navvab of the Carnatic. They 
include the rare history of Shah 'Abbas I. by Jalal Munajjim (p. 181), and the Putuliat i 
•Adilshahi (p. 317).

The residency of Baglidad, left vacant by the death of Rich, was filled some years 
later by Colonel Robert Taylor, who occupied the post from 1828 to 1843, and died at 
Boulogne in 1852." During his previous long residence in the East, chiefly at Bushchr 
and Basrah, and while accompanying Sir Gore Ouseley on his mission to the Persian 
Court, Col. Taylor had acquired a thorough knowledge of Arabic and Persian. EoUow- 
ing in the track of his predecessor, he carried on the search after Oriental M8S. with the 
same unremitting energy. But he was more discriminate, not to say fastidious, in his 
choice, and confined his selection almost exclusively to early copies of important works 
of historical or geographical interest. The result was a collection which, although 
numerically inferior to that of Rich, may bo said to exceed it in intrinsic value. 

It consists of 355 volumes (now Add. MSS. 23252—23606), viz., 247 Arabic, 
90 Persian, 11 Turkish, 7 Syriac and Mendaitic ; and was purchased of Col. Taylor's 
widow in the year 1860. 

The Persian section includes— 

The general history of Khwurshah, known as Elchi e Nizamshrdi, a work written 
A.H. 970, at the Court of Shah Tahmrisp (p. 107). 

An early and complete copy of Tarikh i Vassaf (p. 161). 
Tfirikh i Giti-gushai, a history of the Zand dynasty (p. 196). 

Zinat ut-Tavarikh, a voluminous historical compilation, written for Eath 'Ali Shah, 
A.H. 1221 (p. 135). 

An early copy of the Sharaf Namah, or history of the Kurds by Sharaf Khan 
Bidlisi (p. 208). 

Three works relating to the history of Shushtar and its famous dyke (pp. 214, 
215, 383). 

A fair and early copy of Majalis ul-Muminin (p. 337). 

A narrative of a journey to England by Mirza Abul-Hasan, the Persian Ambassador 
of Morier's " Haji Baba" (p. 386). 

Nafais ul-Eunun, a voluminous eneyclopajdia compiled about A.H. 750 : a nearly 
contemporary copy (p. 437). 

Siyar ul-Muluk, a treatise on king-craft by the famous Nizam ul-Mulk (p. 444). 

Zakhirah i Kliwarazmshahl, or thesaurus medicinse, composed circa A.H. 500 
(p. 466). 

Tuhfat ul-Alibab, a rare poetical glossary, by Hafiz AubahT, A.H. 936 (p. 494). 

Col. Taylor had an illustrious successor in the person of Colonel, now Major- 
General, Sir Henry Cueswickb Rawlinson, K.C.B., whose brilliant achievements in 
the decipherment of the cuneiform inscriptions, and learned researches in Eastern 

* Sec a Memoir of the Life of Col. R. Taylor, written by his son-in-law, T. K. Lynch, Esq., and printed in 
the preface to the Arabic Catalogue of the British Museum, p. ii. 



geography, are too well known to need recording here. Previous to his appointment in 
1843 to the Eesidency of Baghdad, where he remained as Consul-General until 1851, 
Sir Henry had spent ten years, partly in Persia, where he held a command in the army 
of the Shah, partly in Afghanistan as Political Agent. In 1859 he was sent as Envoy 
Extraordinary to the Court of Teheran. 

In the rarity and importance of its contents, and more especially in the marked 
preponderance of historical works, the collection of Sir Henry Eawlinson hears a close 
resemhlance to that of Col. Taylor, to which, however, it is inferior in point of numbers. 
It consists of 104 volumes (Oriental MSS. 1491—1594), viz., 75 Arabic, 23 Persian, 
2 Turkisli, .3 Syriac, andlPehlevi; audit was acquired for the Museum in the year 1877. 

Of the Persian MSS. the most valuable are — 

The first, and only extant, volume of the Geography of Hafiz Abru, written for 
Shahrukh A.H. 820, and containing a full and important history of Khorasan (p. 421). 

A geographical work, with maps, translated for the Amir of Jand about A.H. 616 
from an Arabic original ascribed to Jaihani (p. 417). This is a modern transcript from 
an old and fine MS. obtained by Sir Henry at Isfahan in 1837 and lost in the troubles 
of Afghanistan. 

A general history compiled A.H. 816 for Mirza Iskandar, Viceroy of Pars, and 
containing a contemporary account of tlie campaigns of Tlmfir (p. 1062). 

The Haft Paikar of Nizami, written by a celebrated calligrapher, Shah Mahmiid 
Nishapuri, A.H. 952 (p. 574). 

To Sib John Campbell, who in 1831 succeeded Sir John Macdonald Kinneir as 
British Envoy at the Persian Court and took an active share in the transactions which 
secured the throne to Muhammad Shah (see p. 393), the Museum is indebted for 
sixteen Persian MSS. (Add. 22692 — 22707) which were purchased of his widow in the 
year 1859. 

They include — 

An early copy of the Guzidah, to which is added a history of the Muzaffari dynasty 
composed A.H. 823 (p. 80), 

A volume containing two very rare works, a history of the Saljuk dynasty by 
Muhammad Ben un-Nizam, and a contemporary account of the Karakhitais of Kirman 
by Nasir ud-Din Yazdi (p. 848). 

Tiirikh i Jahan-ara, a detailed history of Path 'Ali Shah by Muhammad Sadik 
(p. 200). 

An illuminated copy of the Khamsah of Amir Khusrau, dated A.H. 978 (p. 616). 
A Divan of the same poet, dated A.H. 890 (p. 614). 
A Divan of Khayrili, dated A.H. 889 (p. 639). 

The Eight Honourable Sib Chables Augustus Mubkay was the immediate pre- 
decessor of Sir Henry RawHnson at the Court of Persia, to which he was sent as Envoy 



Extraordinary in tlie year 1854. He had previously filled the post of Consul- General 
in Egypt, to which he was appointed in 1844. Both countries are represented in his 
collection, which was purchased for the Museum in 1875, and contains 45 Coptic and 
Arabic, and 15 Persian MSS. (Oriental MSS. 1314-1373). 

Of the latter, the most remarkable are — Richly illuminated 16th century copies of 
the Zafar Namah (p. 176), of the Khamsah of Nizami (p. 572), and of the Kulliyat i 
Sa'di (p. 599), the last from the library of Path 'Ali Shah. 

An account of the numerous descendants of Path 'All Shah (p. 201). 

A fine album of miniatures and specimens of calligraphy (p. 786). 

Two more names will complete the list of collections formed in Persia or on its 
borders, The Reverend J. H. Steknschuss, on his return from that country, where he 
bad resided some years as missionary, offered to the Museum in 1851 a set of 53 
Oriental MSS. (Add. 18497—18549), nine of which were Persian. Among the latter 
are found — 

Our earliest copy of the Shahnamah, written in Naskhi, probably in the 13th 
century, and stated to come from Yazd (p. 533). 

A very fine and valuable copy of the complete works of Amir Khusrau, dated A.H. 
923 (p. 609). 

The poems of Shaukat, a Kajar prince (p. 727). 

Khulasat ul-Afkar, or notices of poets compiled A.H. 1211, by Abu Trdib Khan 
fp. 378). 

M. Alexandre Jaba, who was appointed in 1856 Russian Consul in Erzeroum, is 
well known to Oriental scholars as the chief authority on the Kurdisli language. His 
"Recucil de notices et recits Kourdes " was published in St. Petersburg in 1860, and his 
" Dictionnaire Kurde-Pranjais," in the same place in 1879. His collection, consisting 
of 46 Turkish, 38 Arabic, and 22 Persian MSS. (Oriental 1126—1231), was purchased 
by the Musuem in 1872. 

The Persian section comprises — 

Our earliest copy of the Magnavi of Jalal ud-Din Rumi, written probably about 
A.D. 1400 (p. 586). 

The revised edition of the same poem, by 'Ahd ul-Latif Gujrati (p. 589). 
The apocryphal seventh Daftar of the Magnavi (p. 587). 
A Divan of Jami, dated four years before the poet's death (p. 644). 
The Mukaddimat ul-Adab of Zamakhshari, dated A.H. 864 (p. 506). 

Turning now to the accessions which the Persian collection has received from India, 
we find a rich store of MSS., brought together during the last hundred years by a 
succession of eminent men, all of them civil or military servants of the Honourable East- 
India Company. 

PREFACE. zvii 

First of tkcse in point of time, as well as in rank and fame, stands Waeeen 
Hastings, whose stock of Oriental MSS., however, is by no means proportionate to the 
place he fills in history. It amounts to twenty Persian and Arabic volumes (Oriental 
MSS. 1105 — 1124) found among his voluminous papers, which did not reach the 
Museum until the year 1872. The historical works, which form the main part of the 
Persian section, are of common occurrence, with the only exception of Salim Ullah's 
history of the Nazims of Bengal (p. 312). 

Captain Chaeles Hamilton," of the Bengal establishment, one of the first members 
of the Asiatic Society of Calcutta, is known as the author of an " Historical Relation of 
the origin and progress of the Rohilla Afgans," published in 1787, and of the transla- 
tion of the Persian Hidayah, printed in London, 1791. The original of the latter work, 
in four volumes (p. 23), is found among the 25 MSS. (Additional 5543—5567) which he 
left at his death, in 1792, and which were purchased for the Museum in 1794. They 
comprise also the Persian and Arabic dictionaries of 'Abd ur-Rashid Tattavi (pp. 500, 510) 
and a hitherto unnoticed Arabic lexicon compiled for Jahangir (p. 509). 

The first Indian collection of any extent is due to Nathaniel Brassey IIalhed, 
the well-known author of a " Code of Gentoo Laws," compiled by desire of Warren 
Hastings, and published under his authority in London, 1776 (see p. 62). Halhed was 
one of the first pioneers in the field of Sanskrit, and an eager inquirer into the creed, 
mythology, and legends of the Hindus, which, the original language being yet in a 
great measure a sealed letter, he was fain to study at second hand through the medium 
of the Persian translations. Copies of these, covered with his annotations, form a 
prominent feature of his collection. His MSS., 93 in number (Additional 5569 — 5661), 
59 being Persian, were bought partly of a bookseller, partly of himself, in the years 1795 
and 1796. They include— 

Two copies of the Persian version of the Mahabharata made by command of Akbar, 
the first of which is copiously illuminated with Hindu drawings (p. 57). 

Translations of the Bhagavad-gita, Bhagavata-Purana, and Yoga-Vasishtha 
(pp. 59—61). 

Two copies of the Kashf ul-Lughtit, a poetical glossary compiled about A.H. 950 
by 'Abd ur-Rahim Sur (p. 495). 

A fine Shahnamah with numerous miniatures in the Indian style, once belonging 
to the Emperor Jahangir (p. 536). 

Contemporary copies of the Divan of Talib Amuli (p. 679) and of the rare Divan of 
Rafi'i (p. 672).

xviii PEEFACE. 

A still larger set of Oriental MSS., consisting of 130 volumes (Additional 6528— 
6657) was bequeathed to the Museum in 1825 by the Key. John Eowler Hull. They 
appear to have been collected in India by James Grant, whose name and official seal 
are to be seen on most of them. 

James Grant, who held from 1780 to 1784 the post of Eesident at the Court of 
Nizam 'All, had transcripts made for him of some important historical works in the 
library of Samsam ul-Mulk in Haidarabad. After his return to Bengal he was appointed, 
in 1786, Chief Serrishtadfir of the Board of Eevcnue, and carried on a searching 
investigation into the native system of land-tenure. Some of the materials collected by him 
for that purpose are found in his papers (p. 408), and the information he obtained was 
embodied in an " Inquiry into the nature of Zemindary tenures," printed in London, 1790. 

The Persian division of this collection consists of 106 MSS., chiefly historical. The 
following are some of the most valuable :— 

Ma'asir ul-Umara, or lives of the great Amirs of the Indian empire, transcribed 
from a MS. in the library of the author, Samsam ul-Mulk Shahnavaz Khan (p. 339). 

Mir'at us-Safa (p. 120), Tarikh i Khafi Khan (p. 232), Mir'at ul-Varidat (p. 275), all 
copied from MSS. in the same library. 

An early and rare translation of the Memoirs of Babar, by Mirza Payindah (p. 801). 

Tabakat i Akbari, from the library of Aurangzib (p. 220). 

An anonymous history of the Kutubshahis (p. 320). 

A 15th century copy of the Zafar-Namah with the Mukaddimah (p. 174). 
Madar ul-Afazil, a copious Persian dictionary by Ilahdad Eaizi (p. 496). 
Tarhang i Jahangiri, transcribed from a MS. corrected by the author (p. 497). 
Mihr u Mushtari by "Assar, with Persian miniatures, dated A.H. 876 (p. 626). 

About the beginning of the present century a collection of considerable extent 
and great value was formed by Major William Yule, who was born in East Lothian 
in 1764, went to India as a cadet in 1781, returned home in 1806, and died in 
Edinburgh in 1839. Major Yule was no mean Persian scholar: his MSS. are full of 
marginal notes which bear testimony to their attentive perusal by the owner. They 
were mostly collected during the latter years of his Indian career, when he was 
Assistant-Kesident in Lucknow under Lieut. -Col. William Scott, and afterwards in 
Dehli under Lieut.-Col. David Ochtcrlony." 

The collection consists of 267 Arabic, Persian, and Hindustani MSB., now designated 
Additional 16637 — 16880, 18401 — 18423. Por this most valuable accession to the 
Oriental library the Museum is indebted to the liberality of the three sons of the 
ooUeotor, Sir George Udny Yule, C.B., K.C.S.I., the late Lieut.-Col. Eobert Abercrombie 

» For the aboTe data we are indebted to M,ijor-General Sir Frederic J. Goldsmid, who, in a review of the 
seeond volume of the Persian Catalogue inserted in the "Athenaium" of Sept. 21, 1S81, has given interesting 
notices of three of the principal contributors to the Oriental Collection. 


Yule, and tlie learned editor of Marco Polo, Col. Henry Tule, C.B., wlio xn-esented the 
whole collection to the Trustees in two portions in the years 1847 and 1850. 

The Persian MSS., which amount to 232 volumes, and include many fine and 
ancient copies written in Persia, are partly derived from the libraries of the Safavi 
prince, Sultan Muhammad Mirza, of Tikct Eai, minister of Oude, and of the French 
General Claude Martin, who died in Lucknow in 1 800. We must here confine ourselves 
to the mention of a few of the rarest and most choice : — 

Tarikh i Ghazani, or Eashid ud-Din's history of the Moghuls, a fine MS. of the 
14th century (p. 78). 

The Safar-Namah of Nasir i Khusrau, a MS. dated A.H. 1102, which the learned 
editor, M. C. Schefer, holds for the hest copy extant of that extremely rare and curious 
work (pp. 379, 1086). 

A 16th century copy of the Majma' ul-Ansah (p. 83).

(pp. 370, 371). 

A treatise on the art of war composed for Sultan Shams ud-Din Iltatmish about 
A.H. 620, by Fakhr ud-Din Mubarakshah (p. 487).

The next collection, one of the largest made in India, is due to the accomplished 
translator of the "Memoirs of Baber." William Ekskine, born in Edinburgh in 1773, 

c 2 



was bred for the legal profession, and qualified as a Writer of the Signet. Sir James 
Mackintosh, on his appointment as Recorder of Bombay in 180i, took him to India as his 
Secretary," and in 1809 gave him in marriage one of his daughters, a sister of Mrs. Rich. 

In 1808 Erskine was appointed Clerk of the Court of Small Causes, and in 1820 
Master in Equity. He was one of the founders and the first Secretary of the Literary 
Society of Bombay, of which he subsequently became Vice-President. To its trans- 
actions he contributed five learned dissertations relating to Parsi literature and Indian 
antiquities, which have been summarised by Dr. John Wilson in the Journal of the 
Bombay Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society, vol. iv., pp. 276 — 284. 

In 1823 failing health compelled Erskine to leave India; but after a short interval 
he resumed his studies and literary researches. He spent the last years of his life 
chiefly in Edinburgh, at Pau, and at Bonn on the Rhine, and died in his native city on 
the 28t]i of May, 1852.'^ 

His fame chiefly rests on two works written, or completed, after his return to 
England, viz. the translation of the Autobiography of Baber, published in London, 1826, 
with an introduction and notes, which display the author's full command of the subject, 
and the " History of India under the two first sovereigns of the House of Taimur, Baber 
and Humayun," completed in 1815, and edited, after the author's death, by his son, 
Claude Erskine, London, 1851. The masterly treatment of these two reigns must 
inspire every reader with deep regret that life and health were not vouchsafed to the 
author for the carrying out of his original plan of a complete history of the house of 
Timur from Bilbar to Aurangzib, a work for which he had collected ample materials. 

These materials are happily preserved and accessible to all. They form the main 
and most valuable part of Erskine's English papers, which, together with those of his 
friend Dr. John Leyden, were liberally presented to the Museum, in 1865, by Claude 
Erskine, Esq., and are now numbered Additional MSS. 26555—26621. They consist of 
translations and abstracts which he made for himself of the following historical works : 
Memoirs of Humayun's reign by Jauhar (Add. 26608, 26620).— Tarikh i Rashidi by 
Mirza Haidar Dughlat (Add. 26612).— Memoirs of Bayazid Bayat, relating to the reigns 
of Humayun and Akbar, and brought down to A.H. 999 (Add. 26610).— Muntakhab ut- 
Tavarikh by 'Abd ul-Kudir Bada'unI (Add. 26609).— Akbar Namah by Abul-Eazl: the 
reign of Humayun (Add. 26607) ; abstract of the reign of Akbar (Add. 26620, 26621).— 
Memoirs of Jahangir: the first ten years of the reign (Add. 26611).— Ikbal Namah i 
Jahangiri (Add. 26612).— Tarikh i Khafi Khan : the reign of ShahjahSn (Add. 26613-14) ; 
the first part of the same work, extending from Babar to the 21st year of Jahangir, 

' Sir James wrote at that time that "he had the good fortune to bring out with him a young Scotch 
gentleman, Mr. Erskine, who was one of the most amiable, ingenious, and accurately informed men of the world."

ceedings, p. ii,, and in the " Calcutta Review," vol. xxv. p. 287. 



translated by Captain Gordon and corrected by Ersldne (Add. 20617—26619) ; abstract 
of tlio same work from the accession of Slialijahan to tlie reign of Earruklisiyar (Add. 

Erskine's Oriental MSS., purcliased of the collector's son in 1865, amount to 436 
volumes, in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Sindi, Sanskrit, Prakrit, Marathi, and Hindi, and 
are now numbered Additional MSS. 20119—26554. The Memoirs of Babar are repre- 
sented by a copy of the Turki original, dated A.H. 1039 (Add. 26324) ; two copies of 
the Persian version made for Akbar (pp. 244, 245) ; and fragments of the earlier trans- 
lation of Shaikh Zain (pp. 246, 926). 

Among the Persian MSS., which are 195 in number, are found, besides the above, 
the following valuable works : — 

Tabakat i Nasiri, the earliest Persian history extant: a fair copy of the 14tli 
century (p. 72). 

Tarikb Abulkhair-khani, an otherwise unknown history, composed for "Abd ul-Latif 
Khan Uzbak about A.H. 947 (p. 102). 

Ulus Arba'ah Changizi, also called Shajarat ul-Atrak (p. 164). 

The Nigaristan of Ahmad Ghaffari, a copy written in the author's lifetime,

History of the Deccan by Lachhmi Narayan Shafik (p. 859). 

Choice and early copies of the Khamsah i Nizami (p. 571), of the Masnavi (p. 586), 
and of the Haft Manzar (p. 653). 

The venerable leader of Sanskrit scholars, Horace Hayman Wilson, who resided 
in India from 1808 to 1833, and died in London on the 8th of May 1860 at the age of 
seventy-four," left a few Persian and Hindustani MSS. (Add. 24027—24048) which 
passed, shortly after his death, to the British Museum. 

Wilson was a fluent reader of Persian; and from these volumes he drew materials 
for certain of the subjects of his wide-ranging research, especially that of Hindu castes 
(pp. 854, 1095), and the history of Kashmir (pp. 296—299). They include also two 
rare historical works : the Niidir uz-Zamani of Khwushhal Chand (p. 128), and the 
account of the successors of Aurangzib by Ghulam 'Ali Khan (p. 278). 

* An account of Prof. Wilson's life and of his prodigious literary work will be found in the " Journal of the 
Royal Asiatic Society," yoI. xviii., " Proceedings," p. ii. 



The next collection lias a very distinct character. It was formed by Sm Henry 
MiEKs Elliot, K.O B., between the years 1840 and 1852, with the special object of 
bringing together all the extant records of Indian history. 

Born in Westminster in the year 1808, Elliot entered the Indian service in 1827 
as writer on the Bengal establishment. He soon rose to higher duties : we find him 
successively Assistant-Magistrate, Magistrate, Collector, and Secretary to the Board of 
Revenue, in Bareilly, Dehli, Meerut, Moradahad, and in the North -West Provinces. In 
1847 he was appointed Secretary to the Government of India in the Foreign Department, 
and in that capacity he accompanied the Governor-General, Lord Hardinge, to the 
Panjab. He continued to hold the same important post during the administration of 
Lord Dalhousie, until broken health compelled him, in 1853, to leave India. He then 
proceeded to the Cape of Good Hope, where he died at the beginning of the year 1854. 

Adopting the plan sketched out by Erskine, Sir Henry Elliot gave it a wider scope. 
A project, which he submitted in 1816 to the Lieutenant-Governor of the North-West 
Provinces, but which he was not destined to carry out, aimed at nothing less than the 
publication in extenso of the best native works illustrating the history of India during 
the whole of the Muhammadan period. As a preliminary step, he was invited to com- 
pile an index of such works as were to be included in the series. 

In Elliot's hands this index soon expanded into several volumes : it became an 
exhaustive survey of the historical literature of India, with critical notices of the authors 
and copious extracts from their works. The first volume was published in Calcutta, 
1849, under the title of "Bibliographical Index to the Historians of Muhammedan India." 
At the same time a list of desiderata, drawn up in Persian and entitled Misbah ut- 
Talibin, was distributed all over India, and had the desired efiect of eliciting notices of 
historical MSS. from every quarter and of drawing many a rare volume from its hiding- 
place. The material grew apace, and the Index was re-modelled on a still more 
extensive scale. Shortly before his death the author published a second and last 
instalment of the work. It was printed at Cape Town in 1853, under the title of 
" Appendix to the Arabs in Sind, vol. iii., part i., of the Historians of India." 

But the fruit of so much labour was not lost to the public. The voluminous papers 
left by Sir Henry Elliot were entrusted in 1866 to the able editorship of the late 
Professor John Dowson, who published them, on a modified plan and with valuable 
additions of his own, in eight volumes, entitled " The History of India as told by its own 
historians," and printed in London from 1867 to 1877. 

The Oriental MSS. of Sir H. Elliot are 458 in number, 429 being Persian, and the 
remainder Arabic and Hindustani. They were purchased of the collector's son, the 
Reverend H. L. Elliot, in 1878 ; and, as a considerable portion of the Persian Catalogue 
was then already printed, they have been separately described in the third volume. In 
addition to MSS. acquired by Sir Henry or transcribed for him, they include a vast 



number of extracts made by Ms direction from historical works in other collections, and 
several lists of MSS. extant in various i^rivate or royal libraries in India." 

The following are some of the most important MSS. of the collection : — 

Tarikh i Baihald, or history of the Saltan Mas'iid Ghaznavi : three copies of the 
17th century (p. 901). 

Tarikh i Firuzshuhi by Ziyrd Barani: a good MS. of the 15th century (p. 919).

" Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society of Bengal," vol. xxiii. pp. 225—263. But the numbers there given do 
not agree with those which the MSS. bore at the time of the purchase of the collection, and which have been 
followed in their present arrangement, so that identification is in some cases doubtful.

The Arabic MSS. include the Kanun Mas'iidi of al-Birfim : a fine copy dated A.H. 
670 (p. 1013 o), and part of a general history inscribed Tarikh i Tabari, but evidently 
due to al-Jannabi (p. 1023 b). 

The English portion of the Elliot Collection, although not coming within the scope 
of the Persian Catalogue, deserves a brief notice. It consists of a large number of 
translations, extracts, and notices, prepared in view of the Bibliographical Index, now 
bound in 22 volumes (Add. 30768 — 30789). In furtherance of his vast scheme. Sir 
Henry Elliot often availed himself of the willing assistance of Persian scholars in the 
junior ranks of the Indian Service, and translations supplied by them have only par- 
tially been used by himself or his editor. The following are the most important :— - 

Life of Salar Mas'iid and Memoirs of Asad Beg Kazvini (p. 1029j, translated by 
Robert Barclay Chapman, B.C.S. (Add. 30776). 

"Inayat Khan's history of Shilhjahan (p. 201), Jauhar i Samsam (p. 941), Manazil ■

of our Indian collections is due, was bom in Edinburgh in the year 1807, and was 
appointed in 1823 a cadet to the 17tli regiment of Native Infantry, Bengal. After rising 
to the rank of Captain, he was called in 1843 to civil duties as Deputy-Commissioner in 
Saugor; and held subsequently, from 1854 to 1866, the post of Commissioner in the 
Mooltan division, Punjab. He was then transferred to Dehli, where he largely increased 
his already considerable collection of MSS. Towards the end of 1867 he returned to 
England, too late to recruit his broken health, and succumbed to a painful illness on 
the 28th of Pebruary, 1868. 

Although later in the field than Sir H. Elliot, Colonel Hamilton succeeded in 
reaping a rich harvest. Favoured by the circumstances of the time he rescued many a 
valuable work from the wreck of the Lucknow libraries. Several of his MSS. bear the 
vermilion stamp of the kings of Oude, and not a few are the identical copies which Dr. 
Sprenger had seen in 1849 on the shelves of the Moty Mahall Palace, and described in 
his valuable " Catalogue of the MSS. in the libraries of the King of Oudli." 

The Hamilton MSS. now in the Museum were selected in 1868 as the most valuable 
part of the entire collection, which amounted to upwards of a thousand volumes. They 
are 352 in number (Oriental 89—421, 460—478), viz. 253 Persian, 66 Arabic, 17 Hindi, 
7 Pushtu, 8 Turkish, and 1 Pali. The Persian section is rich in rare and important 
works belonging to the literatures of Persia proper and of India, in all tlieir branches. 
The following are some of the most remarkable — 

A contemporary account of the events which immediately followed the death of 
Timur (p. 180). 

A general history, written in India about A.H. 842, by Muhammad Bihamadkliani,

Having thus completed our survey of the collections of Eastern origin, we now 
proceed to notice briefly a few scholars whose collections were formed in Europe and 
have passed wdiolly or in part into the library of the Museum. 

Eirst among these, in point of time, is Tuomas Hydb, librarian of the Bodleian and 
author of the " Historia lleligionis Veterum Persarum," which was published in 1700, 
three years before his death. His Zend and Persian MSS. (Royal MSS. 16 B i.— xxiii.), 
which he appears to have received from Surat, appertain to the Parsi literature, of 
which he was the first investigator in Europe. (See pp. 46 — 49). 

The Rev. John Haddon Hindlbt, of Manchester, published in 1800 the " Persian 
Lyrics from the Divan i Hafiz," and edited in 1809 the " Pendeh i Attar." He appears 
to have spent a life-time in transcribing Arabic and Persian MSS., without ever 
acquiring more than a very elementary knowledge of either language. His MSS. (Add. 
(3913_7057), 71 of which are Persian, were presented in 1829, shortly after his death, 
to the Museum. They mostly consist of indifi^erent copies of MSS. existing in English 
libraries, and form the least valuable part of our collection. 

Dr. Adam Clarke, a Wesleyan minister and Oriental scholar, chiefly known as the 
author of a commentary on the Bible published from 1810 to 1826, died in the year 
1832. His Persian MSS. (Bgerton 682—707), purchased for the Museum in 1838, 
include a good and early copy of the Gulshan i Ibrahimi (p. 227), the rare Divm of 
Mas ud i Sa'd (p. 548), and a fair MS. of the Hadlkah of Sana'i, dated A.H. 890 
(p. 550). 

William Hook MoiiLEV, the accomplished scholar who was the first to give a 
comprehensive view of the historical literature of the East in his admirable "Descriptive 
Catalogue of the historical MSS. of the Royal Asiatic Society," died in 1860 at the early 



age of forty-five. Among the fifteen Oriental MSS. wliicli passed from his library into 
the Museum (Add. 24080 — 24093, Or. 1) two are entitled to special notice, viz. the 
copy of Tarikh i BaihakT on which Morley's edition of the text was based (p. 158), and 
the rare Yiisuf u Zulaikha of Eirdausi (p. 545). 

The celebrated Arabic and Syriac scholar. Dr. William Cureton, left, at his death 
in 1864, a valuable collection of 156 Oriental MSS., which was purchased in the same 
year for the Musuem (Add. 25728—25881). The Persian MSS., 106 in number, include 
a 16th century copy of the Tabakat i Nasiri, with a curious fragment of an autobio- 
graphy of Sultan Muhammad B. Tughluk (pp. 73, 1070); a Khamsah i Nizami of the 
15th century, from the library of Aurangzib (p. 572), and Makhzan ul-Asrar, written 
by the celebrated penman Sultan 'Ali Mashhadi A.II. 865 (p. 573). 

The Eev. George Cecil Eenouaed, M.R.A.S., of Swanscombe, Kent, a contributor 
to the History of Greece, in the BncyclopEedia Metropolitana, died at an advanced age 
in 1867. He left twenty-three Arabic, Persian and Turkish MSS. (Oriental 16—38), 
some of which he had obtained in Constantinople in the years 1805 and 1806. The 
Persian section contains three rare works — the Divan of Haidar i Shlrfizi, a previously 
unknown contemporary of Hafiz (p. 623) ; Dilkushfi, an account of the Deccan wars in 
the time of Aurangzib, by a Bondela officer (p. 271), and a history of Parrukhsiyar by 
Mh- Ahsan Ijad (p. 273), 

The various collections above noticed account in the aggregate for upwards of two 
thousand volumes, or four-fifths of the MSS. described in the present catalogue. They 
leave a residuum of about five hundred MSS. acquired singly or in small groups from 
booksellers, public sales, or other sources, which it is needless to enumerate. Of these 
it will be sufiioient to point out a few which, being unique or very scarce, have special 
claims on the reader's attention. 

Tarikh i Yamini, translated from the Arabic about A.H. 602, by Abu'sh-Sharaf 
Niisih of Jarbazakan, with an appendix, relating to contemporary events in Azarbaijan 
(p. 157). The Zafar Namah, by Nizam Shami, of Shamb i Ghazan : the earliest history

Schefer in an appendix to the " Sefer Nameh " of Nasir i Khusrau, p. 298. 

A fragment of the Shahriyar Namah, a previously unknown poem, by Mukhtari

Salman Savaji (p. 624) and Ghazidi (p. 6G1) ; and a collection of Ghazals from twelve 
early Divans, dated A.H. 863 (p. 734).

A Baluchi vocabulary, presented by Lieut.-Col. S. B. Miles, for whom it was

Ancient Persian MSS. are exceedingly rare. The Museum possesses none of an 
earlier date than A.H. 626 (A.D. 1229), nor has it any undated MSS. which could be 
safely assigned to an older period. The following table exhibits, in chronological order, 
the dated MSS. of the collection from that year to A.H. 900 (A.D. 1495), and the 
undated MSS. to which conjectural dates, ranging over the same period, have been 
assigned, with references to the pages of the Catalogue.

A distinctive feature of the Persian collection is the large proportion of illuminated 
MSS. which it contains, and which give it a high value for the study of Eastern art. 
The object of the following table is to draw the reader's attention to those MSS. which, 
from the richness of then- ornamentation, or the excellence of their miniatures, may rank 
with the choicest specimens of Oriental illumination. In its compilation dated examples 
have been specially selected with a view to forming a consecutive chronological series. 
On account of the marked difference existing between the Persian and Indian styles, 
specimens of the latter school have been classed separately.

Calligraphy is an art more higlily valued in the East than in the West. European 
readers set greater store by the correctness of the text than by the artistic excellence of 
the writing. But if we keep in mind that the great calligraphers of Persia were always 
men. of literary taste, not seldom poets, and that, working, as they mostly did, for 
princes, they had access to the best MSS., we shall not be surprised to find that their 
copies generally combine accuracy with elegance. A curious instance of this has been 
noticed in the Catalogue, p. 1073 : of our numerous coj)ies of the Khamsah of Nizami 
one only spells correctly the outlandish name of the king of Shirvan, Akhsatiin, and 
that one we owe to the renowned penman. Shah Mahmud, of Nishapur. 

It will not, therefore, be superfluous to point out those of our MSS. which are 
signed by calligraphers of note. They arc arranged in the following list in chrono- 
loarical order.

The original lists of some of tlie collections above enumerated are extant. Wo 
have a " Catalogue of Oriental Manuscripts in the possession of William Brskine, Esq.," 
in the collector's own handwriting, as well as a list drawn up for Colonel Taylor by 
some native secretary, and inscribed by the former, " Persian List of my Slanusoripts, 
Bagdad, April, 1845." 

Of the Elliot MSS. we have a brief list written, also in Persian, after the owner's 
death, and a somewhat fuller one compiled by Prof. Dowson shortly before their 
acquisition by the Museum. 

Rich's own Catalogue of some of his MSS., published in the Mines de I'Orient, has 
been already mentioned. After the purchase of the collection by the Museum, a 
complete catalogue of the Arabic and Persian MSS. was prepared by the Rev. J. 
Porshall, Keeper of the Department of MSS. It consists of two volumes, the first of 
which bears the title " Catalogus Codicum Arabicorum qui in Bibliotheca Richiana 
exstant ; raptim et nimis properanter, sed pro viribus opibusque suis, confecit 
J. Porshall, 1836." The second volume, "Catalogus Codicum Persicorum," which is not 
entirely in Eorshall's handwriting, is dated ISiS. Both volumes are placed in the 
Reading Room of the Museum. 

The first attempt to deal with the Persian collection as a whole was made by 
Dr. Duncan Porbes, to whom the task was confided by the Trustees in 1849, and who 
was engaged upon it from that date to 1855. His catalogue contains descriptions of all 
the Persian MSS. then in the Museum, 1086 in number, and includes also a few Zend 
and Hindustani MSS. The Persian MSS. are divided into eleven classes : History, 
Poetry, RomanoCj etc., and are arranged under each head in the alphabetical order of 
the titles. The author's original draft, bound in four volumes, is kept in the Department 
of MSS., where it is accessible to readers. 

Unfortunately Dr. Porbes' state of health did not allow him to devote to the work 
all the time required for its perfect fulfilment. His catalogue never received the 
thorough revision which was needed to supply its deficiencies. These are chiefly the 
general insufliciency of the information given respecting the contents of the MSS., and 
the almost total absence of biographical notices of the authors and of references to 
printed works. 

In the few years that followed Dr. Porbes's retirement the Persian collection 
received such considerable accessions that its numbers were soon doubled, and the want 
of a printed catalogue became more and more pressing. When the work of cataloguing 
was resumed, in 1872, it was felt that the only satisfactory method of carrying it out 
was to thoroughly re-examine the old material in conjunction with the new, and our 



use of Dr. Porbes's catalogue was practically confined to the help it afforded in the 
preliminary classing of the MSS. 

The wealth of matter, while increasing the labour, opened new sources of infor- 
mation denied to our predecessor. Wc have endeavoured to state the contents of each 
MS. as fully as its importance deserved, and also to determine, as far as our means 
would allow, the period, country, and condition of the writer. 

Thanks to the liberality of the Trustees, we have been enabled to plan and carry 
out the work on a scale which will render it not only a sure guide to the rich stores 
contained in the Museum, but also, we venture to hope, a useful book of reference to 
tlie student of Persian literature.

1850, to Henry Morley, Esq., and subse- 
quently repurchased at the sale of the latter's 
books. Prefixed to the volume is a letter of 

Sir H. Elliot to Mr. Morley, dated from the 
Governor-General's camjj on the Jelam, 
22 January, 1851.

Rashid ud-Din, consisting of the following 
three chapters : History of China, fol. 2 b. 
History of Europe, fol. 50 b. History of

of Shakamuni (Add. 7628, fol. 402 a). 

The contents of this MS. are identical with 
those of Add. 18,878 described p. 79 J, and

The author completed this work, as stated 
in the preface, fol. 16 a, A.H. 861, or, ac- 
cording to another passage, fol. 9 a, in the 
eighth year of the reign of Sultan Muham- 
mad B. Murad, to whom it is dedicated. He 
was then seventy-three years of age, having 
spent, as he states at the end, fol. 363 a, from 
his twenty-second year upwards, fifty-one 
years of his life in the service of the house 
of Osman. He left, besides the present his- 

tory, two religious works entitled Anis ul- 
"Arif In and Minhaj ur-Rashad, the latter of 
which was also dedicated to Sultan Muham- 
mad in A.H. 864; see Haj. Khal., vol. i. 
p. 437, and vol. vi. p. 220. It is stated in 
the Shaka'ik, Add. 9583, fol. 34 a, that 
Maula Shukr Ullah had been sent by Sultan 
Murad on a mission to the prince of Kara- 
man, and that he was treated by Sultan Mu- 
hammad with the greatest consideration. 

The Balijat ut-Tavar'ikh is divided into 
thirteen Babs enumerated in the preface. 
They treat of the following subjects ; — I. Crea- 
tion, souls and spirits, the spheres, the ele- 
ments, the three kingdoms, and races of men 
inhabiting the seven climates, fol. 17 a. 

II. History of some famous prophets, fol. 69 a. 

III. Genealogy of Muhammad, fol. 87 a. 

IV. His birth and life, fol. 101 a. V. Ilis 
wives, concubines, and children, fol. 123 a. 

VI. The ten blessed companions, fol. 139 b. 

VII. Other companions of Jluhammad, fol. 
157 a. VIII. The chiefs of the four schools 
of law, and other great "Ulama, fol. 174 b. 
IX. Shaikhs, fol. 189 a. X. Ancient philo- 
sophers, fol. 212 b. XI. Early kings of Per- 
sia, fol. 217 a. XII. The Yazidis (Umay-

A work on general history, from the 
earliest times to A.H. 1021. 

Author : Hasan B. Muhammad ul-Khaki 
nsh-Shiriizi, ^J''-^ .^-.s* ^) ^^j^ 

Beg. J\ J ^jsi I, t^bj (jVj 

The author, who came of an ancient family 
of SliTraz, puts on record that his ancestor 
in the fourth degree, ^.^^^u , Shams ud-Din 
'Abd TJllah Khcakl Shirazi, had served as 
Bakhshi under the Ak-kuyunlus, and died 
in Tabriz A.H. 902 (fol. 347 a). With re- 
gard to his own life, he states in the preface 
that he had come to India under Akbar, in 
whose reign he commenced the present work, 
and that he completed it under Jaliangh", on 
the 20th of Rajah, A.H. 1019. It contains, 
however, some later additions, in which A.H. 
1021 is given as the current year (foil. 188 a, 
451 b). 

The author records in his liistory of the 
Timurides, foil. 577 b, 583 b, two facts 
relating to himself: in A.H. 1007 he was 
sent by Akbar as Bakhshi to Gujrat, and in 
A.H. 1019 by Jahangir with the oillce of 
Divan to Patnah. 

This history is not to be confounded with 

an earlier work bearing the same title, 
namely the Ahsan ut-Taviirikh of Hasan Beg 

The latter is a special history of Persia 
for the period extending from A.H. 900 to 
985. Iskandar Beg refers his readers to it 
for the history of Shah Tahmasp and of his 
contemporary Humayun. See "Alam Aril, 
Add. 10,684, foil. 22 6, 24 b, Ouseley's MSS., 
No. 346, the St. Petersburg Catalogue, 
p. 276, and the Critical Essay, p. 27. 

The present work, which in some copies 
bears the title ^J'}''^ i-^^, is described in 
Elliot's History of India, vol. vi. pp. 201 — 
206. It is frequently quoted by Gen. Briggs 
in his translation of Firishtali as Moontakhib 
oot-Towareekh. See vol. iv. pp. 241, 252, 
269 etc. 

The Ahsan ut-Tavai'ikh is principally based 
upon the Nusakh i Jahanara (see p. Ill b), 
the elaborate subdivisions of which the 
author has adopted, while altering their 
arrangement. He has also brought down 
the later sections to his own time, and added 
many new chapters relating to Indian his- 
tory, and chiefly derived from the Tabakat 
i Akbarshahi (see p. 220). Brief obituary 
notices of 'Ulama are inserted under several 
reigns, especially those of the Abbasides. 

Contents : — Prophets, fol. 9 b. Ancient

The Zubdat ut-Tavarildi, by HaidarB. 'AlT 
Husaim Eazi, the subject of the present

only known copy of which consists of two 
large folios preserved in the Berlin library. 
The preface, with the statement of contents, 
and extensive extracts relating to the history 
of the Tatars before Chinglz Khau, and of 
India, from the earliest times to the reign of 
Nasir ud-Din B. Iltatmish, have been tran- 
scribed by Dr. Gosclie in the original lan- 

The author states in the preface that he 
had commenced the composition of the work 
in A.H. 1020, and had completed the first 
volume (the only extant part of it), con- 
taining the history of the prophets, khalifs, 
and kings, and consisting of upwards of 
200,000 lines, in A.II. 1026, having at that 
time attained the age of thirty-five years. 
He names as his principal sources the Jami' 
ut-Tavarikh of Rashid, Tarikh Hafiz Abrii, 
Eauzat us-Safa, Habib us-Siyar, and Tarikh 
Alfi, from all of which he had made copious 
extracts without verbal alteration.

A general history compiled under Aurang- 
zib, before A.H. 1094. 

Author: Shaikh Muhammad Baka, ^ 

This work, which is called in the subscrip- 
tion Mir'at Jaluin Numa, is an enlarged recen- 
sion of the history described, p. 125 b, under 
the title of Mir'at ul-'Alam, and was edited 
after the author's death by bis sister's son 
]SIuhammad Shafi'. Although the Mir'at 
ul-'Alam was published as the work of Bakh- 
tavar Khan, we have here Muhammad 
Shafi's testimony for the fact that it was in 
reality due to Muhammad Baka. 

From the editor's notices on the author's 
life and family, we extract the following par- 
ticulars: — The first of his ancestors who set- 
tled in India, Khwsjah Ziya ud-Din, a de- 
scendant of the famous saint Khwajah 'Abd 
UUah Haravi, came from Herat to the court 
of Firuz Shah, A.H. 754, and received, as a 
reward for distinguished services, the title of 
Malik Mardiin Daulat and tlie government 
of Multan. His descendants settled in Sa- 
hiiranpur (Thornton's Suharunpore), where 
Shaikh 'Ahd. us-Sattar, tlie author's great- 
grandfather, died in great renown of sanctity 
A.H. 905 (see fol. 275 a). 

Muhammad Baka, born A.II. 1037, com- 
menced his studies with his father Shaikh 
Ghulam Muhammad, and carried them on in 
Sirhind under Shaikh 'Abd Ullah, called Mi- 
yan Hazrat, and Shaikh Nur ul-Hakk B. 
'Abd ul-Hakk Dihlavi (see p. 224 b). After 
some years devoted to teaching in his native 
town, he embraced a religious life, receiving 
the initiation from his father, and, after him, 
from Sliaikh Muhammad Ma'suni Sirhindi. 
He was, however, prevailed upon by the in- 
stances of Iftikliar Khan Mir Khansaman, 
(A.H. 1073—1080; see Ma'a§ir ul-Umar,i, 
fol. 64), to come to court and accept official 
employment ; but by special favour he 
obtained much leisure, which he devoted to 
literary work. His compositions are the fol- 
lowing : — A MajmCi ah, completed A.H. 1077, 
in which he condensed the substance of the 
Hadikat of Sana'i, the Mantik ut-Tair, and 
the Masnavi. Mir'at ul-'Alam, written 
for Bakhtavar Khan, and published under 
his name. Riya? ul-Auliya (see Or. 1745). 
Tazkirat ush-Sliu'ara. He erected in his 
native city an extensive suburb, called after 
him Bakipiirah, and including a garden and 
a mosque, which was finished in A.H. 1084. 

Bakhtavar Khan, who boldly claims for 
himself the authorship of the Mir'at ul-'Alam, 
i has inserted in that work. Add. T657, fol. 
f 473 b, a short notice of its real author, who. 


as he condescends to acknowledge, "had 
assisted him in its composition." There he 
states that Baljili Saharanpuri, whose original 
name was Shaikh Muhammad Bakfi, was an 
eminent scholar, especially versed in his- 
torical lore, and an elegant writer in prose 
and verse, personally known to the emperor. 
He adds that Baka died A.H. 1094, in Sa- 
haranpur, where he discharged the duties 
of Bakhshi and Vaki'ah-nigar. 

The present volume contains little more 
than the latter half of the work. The first, 
which, according to the original pagination, 
consisted of 363 leaves, comprised the pre- 
face, the Mukaddimah, the first two books 
(Arayish), and the first three chapters (Nu- 
mayish) of the third book. 

The last four chapters of Arayish III., be- 
ginning on fol. 2 a, Arayish IV., fol. 29 b, 
Arayish V., fol. 42 b, and Arayish VI., fol. 
106 a, are in complete agreement with the 
corresponding portions of the Mir'at ul- 
"Alam, Add. 7657, foil. 150 J— 348 b. 

The divergence begins with Arayish VII., 
the division and contents of which differ 
considerably from the latter work. It com- 
prises thi-ee sections called Pairayish, as fol- 
loAvs : — Pairayish I. History of 'Alamgir's 
early life and of the first ten years of his 
reign (the same as in Mir'at ul-'Alam), fol. 
169 a. Pairayish II., divided into five 
chapters (Numayish), as follows: 1. Tlie 
eminent qualities of 'Alamgir, fol. 212 b. 
2. His children, fol. 216 b. 3. The extent of 
his empire, fol. 218 a. 4. Contemporary 
sovereigns, fol. 218 (the above sections agree 
with the Mir'at ul-'Alam). 5. Notices on 
celebrated Vazirs, from the time of the 
early Khalifs to the reign of 'Alamgir, fol. 

Pairayish III., comprising the following 
four chapters (Numiid) : — 1. 'Ulama and 
men of letters of the author's time (difiering 
by omissions and additions from the corre- 
sponding section of Mir'at ul-"Alam), fol. 


238 b. 2. Calligraphers (corresponding to 
the first section of the Afzayish in Mir'at ul- 
'Alam), fol. 245 b. 3. Strange facts and 
curious occurrences (more extensive than 
the corresponding section of Mir'at ul-'Alam), 
fol. 263 b. 4. Account of the author's an- 
cestors, written by the editor, Muhammad 
Shafi' (see fol. 276 b), fol. 271 a. 

The Khatimali contains notices on Persian 
poets in alphabetical order, and the author's 
Ufe. The first section, foil. 277 5—410 5, 
occupies more than four times the space of 
the corresponding portion of the Mir'at ul- 
'Alam, which it greatly surpasses both in 
the number and in the extent of the lives. 
It includes notices of some contemporary 
Amirs. The author's life, foil. 410 b — 413 a, is 
due to the editor, wlio states at the beginning 
that Muhammad Baka liad left the work un- 
finished at his death. 

This copy was written for Mughul Beg, of 
Akbarabad, by Sayyid Kiyam ud-Din. It 
reproduces at the end the versified subscrip- 
tion of an earlier MS., dated A.H. 1143, from 
which it had apparently been transcribed. 

The margins contain in some places exten- 
sive additions written by Muhammad B. 
'Abd Ullah A.ll. 1216 (see fol. 212 b). They 
consist of historical and biographical notices, 
relating, for the most part, to a period sub- 
sequent to the composition of the work. 

A full account of the Mir'at i Jahiinnuma, 
with an abstract of the editor's preface, will 
be found in Elliot's History of India, vol. vii. 
pp. 145 — 165. 

We learn from the preface that the editor 
completed his task A.H. 1095. Of a later 
and independent recension by Muhammad 
Riza, a younger brother of the author, which 
also boars the title of Mir'at i Jahannumfi, 
some fragments are preserved in Or. 1762, iv. 

Extracts from the Mirat i Jahannuma, 
translated for Sir H. Elliot by Munshis, will

A short account of this work by Prof. 
Dowson will be found in Elliot's Ilistory of 
India, vol. vii. p. 141. The only known 
copy of that extensive compilation, which 
was found in the royal library of Lucknow, 
is a folio volume of 904 pages, from which 
the present transcript, as well as headings 
and extracts preserved in Add. 2063, foil. 30 
—52, are derived. It begins, as shown by 
the above extracts, as follows : — 

^jJl _^_,\ ^.ji'^J- J J-^^ ^^^i' J^j»^ j' 
The original MS. has much suffered from 

ants, having lost the lower part of most pages, 
as many gaps in the transcript testify, and it 
is moreover defective at the end. For, al- 
though the preface shows that it originally 
concluded with the reign of Earrukhsiyar, it 
now breaks off in the tenth year of Aurang- 
zib, A.H. 1077. 

It is divided into seven Makalahs, the sub- 
jects of which are, as stated in the preface, 
the following -.—I. Creation. II. Adam and 
the Prophets. III. Muhammad. IV. Early 
kings of Persia. V. Khalifs. VI. Sultan 
Mahmfid, the Ghuris, etc. VII. Timur and 
his descendants. 

The present volume comprises Makiilah 
VI. and the first portion of Makrdah VII., as 
follows : — 

Makalah VI. The Samanis, fol. 1 a. The 
Subuktiginis, fol. 10 a. The Saljukis, to the 
death of Sanjar, fol. 22 a. 'Ala ud-Din 
Muhammad Ivhwarazm Shah, fol. 34 b. The 
Ghuris, from Saif ud-Dm Siiri to 'Ala ud-Din

ud-Din Iltatmish and his successors down to

sketch of the next following Sultans of Dehli, 
fol. 91 b. The Lodis, from Bahliil to the 
early part of Ibrahim's reign, A.II. 923, 
fol. 95 b. 

Makalah VII. Genealogy and life of 
Thnur, fol. 102 a. Reign of Shiihrukh (im- 
perfect), fol. 127 b. 

The greater part of Makalah VI. is taken 
from an earlier work which the compiler has 
transferred bodily to his pages, leaving un- 
altered, not only the name of the author, 
who calls himself at the beginning of some 
sections, foil. 10 a, 22 a, 61 a, Muhammad 
B. Shadi B. Muhammad ul-Kunduzi, but 
references made in several places, foil. 1 b, 
22 S, 78 b, to Abul-Muzaffar Piruz Shah 


(probably Kruz Shah B. Rajab, A.H. 752 — 
790) as the reigning sovereign. 

It appears, however, tliat Muhammad B. 
Shadi himself has but slender claims to 
authorship; for his work, at least the extant 
part of it, is textually transcribed, with some 
omissions and transpositions, from the 
Tabakat i Nasiri, Tabakahs IX.— XXI., the 
writer boldly substituting his own name for 
that of the real author. His only addition 
seems to be an account of the Arab conquest 
of Sind, which he professes to have abridged 
from the Persian version made in the time 
of Nasir ud-Din Kabiichah (the Chach- 
Namah ; see p. 290 b), and which he inserts 
in his work, there designated as ^j^^J^ i-ot^ 
jjt'Jj jj^, in his notice on the reign of that 
sovereign, fol. CI a. 

The account of the Lodis is abridged from 
the Tarikh i Khanjahani, see p. 210 a.

This may be called the first edition of the 
work, a later and enlarged recension of which 
was issued by the author under the title of 
Mir'at us-Safa, and has been described p. 129 a. 


Although agreeing in the main with the last- 
named work, the Burhan ul-Futuh differs 
from it in the preface, which cintains a 
dedication to Navvab Burhan ul-Mulk Sayyid 
Sa";idat Khan, Siibahdar of Oude (see p. 
308 b), and in the arrangement of some of 
its chapters. It shows, moreover, a decided 
Shi'ah bias, and greater condensation in the 
recent period of Indian history, especially in 
the reign of Muhammad Shah. Tlie record 
of this last reign is brought down to the 
month of Zulka'dah, A. II. 114S, and concludes 
with a mention of the threatening movements 
of Baji RSo's forces. The same year, A.H. 
1148, is repeatedly mentioned in the body of 
the work, foil. 9 b, 147 «, 149 a, as the date 
of composition. 

The present MS. is, according to the sub- 
scription, the author's autograph, and pro- 
liably the presentation oo]}j. 

The Burhjin ul-Futfih is divided into a 
Mukaddimah, eighteen chapters ( B.Tb), and a 
Khatimah, as follows: — Mukaddimah treating 
of various eras, fol. 9 b. I. Creation, pro-

portion of the general history of Khwuslihal 
Chand entitled Tarikh i Muhammad-Shrihi

This volume is endorsed Tarikli i Bahadur- 
Shahi, and it has been described under 
that title in Elliot's History, vol. vii. p. 565, 
as a separate and anonymous work. The 
author's name, however, Khwushhal Chand, 
occurs in the body of the work, fol. 
139 6, and an incidental reference which 
he makes, fol. 9 a, to his account of the 
Subahs as contained in the Preface of the 
second Makalah of " this History " (see p. 
128 b), shows clearly that the present volume 

contains a portion of the same work. Ac- 
cording to the summary of contents given 
p. 128 a, it must be the concluding part of 
the first Matla' of Makalah II. 

Contents : Contest of Bahadur Shah with 
A'zam Shcah, fol. 7 a. Eeign of Bahadur 
Shah from his accession to his return from 
tlie Dcccan, fol. 30 b. His journey to Lahore 
and his death, fol. 48 a. Struggle of his 
four sous, fol. 59 b. Keign of Jahandar 
Shah, fol. 67 b. Parrukhsiyar, fol. 89 o. 
Rafi" ud-Daulah, fol. 136 a. 

It appears from some passages that both 
the author and his father held official ap- 
pointments at the Dehli court. Khwushliiil 
Chand states that he had been a witness of 
the triumphal entry of Parruksiyar into the 
capital, and, in another place, that he had 
been in the 2nd and 3rd years of that reign 
in the service of Sayyid Ntlr Khan, Mushrif 
of the emperor's Ghusulkhanah, but had 
left it to join his father, then ajipointed 
Munshi of the Divani of the Subah under 
Pakhr ud-Dm Khan. His father had pre- 
viously been employed as Munshi in the 
office of the emperor's KhausriiLan. Ver- 
sified chronograms composed by him on the 
appointment of Zulfakar Khan, tlie accession 
of Parruksiyar, etc., are occasionally quoted.

A iluhammadan chronicle, containing

death of celebrated men, in strict chrono-

Author : Muhammad B. Rustam B. Kubad 

Beg. c:^j^lJi^jAyi«j_ji_yVa).^j'a;^\i_.«*i'j^^^:s- | 

The author's grandfather, Kubad Beg B. 
'Abd ul-Jalil ul-Hari§i ul-Badakhshi, a 
native of Kandahar, who had received from 
Aurangzib the title of Diyanat Khan, died in 
Dehli A.H. 1083 (see fol. 220, and Tazkirat- 
ul-Uniarri, fol. 41). His son Rustam, after- 
wards Mu'tamad Klian, a man of great 
erudition, served under Aurangzib, and fell 
in the Deccan wars, A.H. 1117, before the 
fortress of Vankankir (see fol. 239 b). The 
author states, that, at the time of his father's 
death, he had completed his nineteenth year; 
he must therefore have been born in A.H. 1098, 
and have reached the ripe age of ninety-two 
years of age in A.H. 1090, when he com- 
pleted the present work, which he had 
commenced, as stated in the preface, as early 
as A.H. 1124. The motive which induced 
him to that undertaking, was, he says, that 
he had found both the Habib us-Siyar and 
the Muntakhab ul-Lubiib of Hasan Beg 
Khaki (sec p. 886 a) very deficient, and the 
work of Muhammad Sadik Isfahani (see 
p. 889 a) far from accurate. He then pro- 
ceeds to enumerate his sources, no less than 
sixty historical and biographical works, 
Arabic and Persian, with the contractions 
adopted for reference to each, besides other 
works occasionally quoted by name. He 
adds that, for the latest period, he had relied 


on his own knowledge and on information 
derived from trustworthy persons. 

The Tarlkh i Muhammadi is divided into 
two volumes (Mujallad). The first contains 
an introduction on the life of Muhammad 
previous to the Hijrah, and a chronicle of the 
first six centuries ; the second, the remaining 
portion of the history. 

The present MS. contains only extracts 
taken, according to a note on the fly-leaf, 
from a copy belonging to Nasr TJllah Kli,in, 
Deputy Collector of Allygurh. The extracts 
arc almost entirely coufinod to obituary 
notices. Few are taken from the first 
volume, foil. 6—12, or from the first half 
of the second, foil. 12 — 45. But from A.H. 
900 to A.H. 1165 they come under consecu- 
tive years, and probably present in some 
parts a full transcript of the original text. 
For the same period the notices relate almost 
exclusively to India, and chiefly to the 
empire of Dehli. From A.H. 1165 to 1190, 
foil. 313 — 320, they become much more 

A few detached notices, foil. 320 i — 321 b, 
with dates ranging from A.H. 1193 to 1208, 
are probably due to another hand.

The author, who in another work, Or. 2020, 
describes himself as an inhabitant of Lahore, 
dedicated the present history in A.H. 1214 
to his maternal uncle and preceptor, Rhi 
Siri Narayan, who had assisted him with his 
advice in its composition. The date is ex- 
pressed in a versified chronogram by the 
word the numerical value of which is 

to be added to that of the above title. The 
work was not completed, however, until 
A.H. 1220. The latter date is conveyed in 
another chronogram at the end by the words 
ili* and C^i-ti-, selected, it is said, in allusion 
to the victories gained in the Deccan by the 
English arms in the same year. 

The Majma' ul-Akhhar is divided into 
eight books termed Akhbar, the contents of 
which are fully stated in Elliot's "History 
of India," vol. viii. p. 355—372. Their sub- 
jects are as follows :— I. Laws and creeds of 
the ancient Hindus and their rulers, fol. 10 a. 

II. Ancient history of Persia, fol. 72 b. 

III. History of the Muslims, fol. 179 b. 

IV. Kings of Yaman, Iran, Turan, etc., fol. 
063 b V. The dynasties which rose after 
Sultan Abu Said, fol. 317 a. VI. Muslim 
kin"s of Hindustan, from the Ghaznavis to

cal dynasties of India, fol. 595 a. VIII. Ac- 
count of Europe and America, according to 
information supplied by Capt. Jonathan 
Scott, fol. 713 a. 


The seventh Akhhar, the most valuable 
part of the work, comprises eleven sections 
termed Khahar, several of which are brought 
down to the time of composition, as follows :

The author, who calls himself an inhabitant 
of Shahjabanabad, had to leave the capital 
and settle in Lucknow, A.H. 1232. There 
he applied himself diligently to the collection 
of materials from numerous Persian, Indian, 
and Arabic works, and thus grew up this 
voluminous compilation, which was com- 
pleted, as stated at the end, on the first 
of Eamazan, A.H. 1249. The author claims 
no other merit than the faithful tran- 
scription of his originals; but he has 
evidently added much of his own, espe- 
cially in the later period of the history of 
Oude and Bengal. 

An EngUsh translation of a portion of the 
work by Munshi Sadasukh Lai is among Sir 
H. Elliot's papers, Add. 30,786, foil. 292— 
391. An account of the Yadgar Bahaduri, 
with some extracts, will we found in his His- 
tory of India, vol. viii. pp. 417 — 425. Sir 
H. Elliot supposed that the present copy, 
which appears to be unique, was the author's 
autograph; but a more attentive examina- 
tion discloses clerical errors which can only 
be ascribed to a copyist. 

The Yadgar i Bahaduri consists of four 
books (Sanihah), subdivided into Dastans, as 
follows : —

This work has been printed in Calcutta, 
1836, and reprinted, with a preface by the 
author's son 'Abd ul-Latif Khan, member of 
the Council of Bengal, Lucknow, 1874.

In his own preface the author, who calls 
himself an inhabitant of Rajahpiir, parganah 
of Santur, chaklah of Bhiisnah, Bengal, says 
that ho had been addicted from his youth to 
the study of history, and, after giving a list 
of thirteen well-known works as his autho- 
rities, fixes the date of the present compila- 
tion, A.H. 1250, in a versified chronogram 
by the words, l-*':*** lib.

This meagre abridgment of Oriental his-

of Sir H. M. Elliot, whom the author had met 
in 'Aligarh, and to wliom it is dedicated. It 
consists of a dry enumeration of reigns, and 
contains no original matter. The Timurides 
of India, with wliich it concludes, are the 
only dynasty which is brought down to the

the original text have been filled up for Sir 
H. Elliot by a scribe called Bindraban, who 
completed his task in July, 1849. The more 
extensive of these later additions are foil. 
26 — 42 (corresponding to pp. 54 — 91 of the 
Calcutta edition), foil. 58—66 (pp. 128—

The contents agree with those of the

of Arabic documents, which in the latter 

occupies pp. 374 — 389, is wanting in the 
MS. The last eight linos of the printed

Elliot, and dated Agra, 21 May, 1849, are 
appended to the volume, the first by Maulavi 
Sana ud-Din Ahmad, of Badayun, offering

second by Maulavi Sadid ud-Din, first pro- 
fessor of Arabic in the Agra Madrasah, in

The work treats of the successive chiefs of 
the Abdali tribe, and records at some length, 
but without any dates, their dealings with 

the Beglerbegis who governed Kandahar for 
the Safavis. The following are the principal 
of these hereditary chiefs : Zirak, fol. 6 b, 
Fafal, fol. 9 h, Khizr Khan, fol. 27 a, Shir 
Khan and his cousin Shah Husain Khan, 
fol. 30 b, Sarmast Khan, fol. 44 a, Sultan, 
fol. 46 b, Daulat Khan, fol. 48 b, and the 
latter's son Rustam Khan, fol. 52 b. This 
last, having been put to death by the Begler- 
begi, was replaced by Khwajah Mir Vais

comes abruptly to a close.

The author states in the preface that he 
went A.H. 1211 to Lahore, where Shahzamiin 
then held his court, and from thence pro- 
ceeded with the king's army to Peshawur, 
wliere he devoted his leisure to the com- 
position of a history of that prince and his 
family. On his return to Lucknow at the 
end of A.H. 1212, he had the honour of 
showing the work to an illustrious and 
holy Sayyid, Khwajah Ahu Muhsin Husain 
Chishti ul-Husaini ul-Maududi, who was 
pleased to approve it, and to communicate 
to him a rough draught in his possession 
of a history of Ahmad Shah and Timiir 
Shah. He then drew up the substance of 
this other work in plain and easy Persian, 
added it, in compliance with the Sayyid's 
desire, to his own composition, and gave to 
the whole, in honour of that holy per- 
sonage, the title of Husain Shahi. It was 
completed, as stated at the end, in Lucknow 
on the 10th of Jumada I., A.H. 1213.

to the Panjab, written by him from his own

received the rewards due to the author.

The royal author says in the preamble that 
he intended to write an account of the wars 
in which he had been engaged, from his ac- 
cession at the age of seventeen years in A.H. 
1216, to the " current year," A.H. 1241.

It concludes with an account of the stay of 
Shuja' ul-Mulk in Shikarpur, of the advance 
of 'Azini Khan's force against him, and of his 
return to Ludhiyanah (A.H. 1235-6). 

The text is destitute of dates ; they were 
probahly given in the headings, which have

The author was born in the Deccan, 
where he spent the first fiTC-and-twenty 
years of his life. He had travelled, he says, 
in company mth his father through its five 
provinces, and had afterwards successively 
visited in an official capacity Giijrat, 
Malvah, Ajmir, Dehli, Agra, the Panjab, 
Sind, and Kashmir. He had proceeded to 
the last country in the train of Jahangir, 
and under the command of Kasim Khan, 
A.H. 1031. Sec foil. 106 a,' 115 b, and 
117 a. 

He states in the preface that detailed his- 
tories of the Sultans of Dehli had been 
written by Ziya'i Barani (p. 333 i), Kazi 
'lyaz Padishah! (?), and "Abd ul-Kadir 
(p. 222 5), but that, as in " these busy times " 
no one had leisure to read those voluminous 
worlvs, he had been induced, notAvithstanding 
his pressing avocations, to draw wp pi'6" 
sent compendium. A.H. 1037 is mentioned, 
fol. 114 a, as the current year, but, at the 
end, A.H. 1038 is fixed in a versified chrono- 
gram by the words i—i>j^ l_>U^ the 
date of composition. 

The work is not divided into chapters. The 
contents are as follows: Gliaznavis, fol. 4 a. 
Ghuris, fol. 7 a. Jalfd ud-Din Firuz Shah 
Khilji and his successors, fol. 16 a. Ghiyas

Respecting Akbar, Jahangir and ShPdjja- 
han, little more is given than a record of 
their accession, foil. 103 — 105. The rest of

A general history of India, from the ear- 
nest times to A.H. 1132. 

Author : Muhammad Hadi, entitled Kam- 
var Khan, ^^'io ^l^Vi.-^' ^^\s> 

Beg. O^iisS'tiiHu^ ijiWlj t^^Wli-rlj ■'^ 
Kamvar Khan has already been mentioned, 
p. 274 b, as the author of Tazkirat us-Salatin 
Chaghata. According to Muhammad Bakhsh, 
who in his history of the successors of Au- 
rangzib, Or. 1832, fol. 44, has made use of 
the "account of Muhammad Shah's reign by 
Kamvar Khan, the latter was a Hindu con- 
verted to Islamism, whose original name was 
Chandidas. His supposed identity with 

Muhammad Hadi, the contin.uator of the Me- 
moirs of Jahangir, who nowhere assumes the 
title of Kamvar Khan, is extremely doubtful. 

The author states in the preface that after 
many years spent in the imperial service, 
which he had entered in the reign of Aurang- 
zib, he had, through the favour of the Vazir 
"Inayat Ullah Khan (see p. 270 6), obtained 
leave to depart from His Majesty's stirrup, 
and to retire to the capital, where he was 
once more free to devote himself to his be- 
loved historical studies. Having met at that 
time with a sad bereavement, he sought to 
relieve his distracted mind by applying him- 
self to the present work, which he wrote, as 
appears from incidental mentions of the cur- 
rent year (foil. 143 b, 218 a), in A.H. 1132. 
Compare Elliot's History, vol. viii. pp. 13—10. 

The author follows Firishtah, and, for the 
later period, Lubb ut-Tavarikh (see p. 228 b), 
as his principal authorities. 

The Haft Gulshan is divided, as its name 
implies, into seven rose-beds (Gulshanj, some 
of which are subdivided into rose-bushes 
(Gulbun), as follows: — 

Gulshan I. Gulbun 1. Kings of Dehli, from 
the earliest times to Babar. (At the end the 
author states his intention of devoting a

design which he carried out five years later 
in his Tazkirat us-Salatin Chaghata; see 
p. 274 b.) Gulbun 2. The Sharkis of Jaun-

The author states in the course of his his- 
tory, fol. 278, that he served in the army of 
Baji Rao, when the latter took possession of 
Malvah, A.H. 1150, and that he deserted it 
to repair to Bhopal. There, as he says 
in the preface, he was able, after long 
wanderings, to dwell three years in peace 
and comfort, under the protection of the 
Amir, Yar Muhammad Khan, and to carry 
out under his auspices a long meditated plan 
by writing the present work, which he com- 
pleted in A.H. 1154. 

Yfir Maliammad Khan had succeeded in 
A.H. 1140 to his father Ddst Muhammad 
Khan, an Afghan chief, who had seized upon 
and fortified Bhopal A.H. 1135, and had 
made himself master of a considerable part 
of Malvah (see foil. 278—280).

The date of composition, A.H. 1173, is 
fixed in a versified clironogram at tlie begin- 
ning by the -vYords (^i,K Liijj j^-O's-. It is 
stated at the end that the work was written by 
desire of the Vazir Ghazi ud-Din Khan, at the 
time of the second invasion of Ahmad Shah 
Abdali, and that the author died shortly 
after compiling it. Its final arrangement 
was carried out by Chatarman's grandson, 
Rai Khan Munshi, called Rrd-Zadah, who 
added to it a short preface dated A.H. 1204. 
See Elliot's History, vol. viii. p. 255. 

The work is divided, as its name implies,

of the Subah, fol. 20 a, on its places of 
pilgrimage and other remarkable localities, 
fol. 33 S, on its rivers, fol. 36 b, and its sub-

The author, who in the heading is styled 
Muhahbat Khan, traces his pedigree, ac- 
cording to the Afghan tradition, to Saul, and 
through the patriarchs up to Adam. He 
was a descendant in the fifth degree of Dilir 
Khan Da'iidzai, a Rohilla chief, who, together 
with liis brother Bahadur Khan, played a 
conspicuous part in the wars of the time of 
Aurangzib, and died A.H. 1094. See the 
Maasir ul-Umara, fol. 212. He dwells at 
great length in the course of his history on 
the warlike deeds of his ancestors, and enters 
into details respecting the town of Shah- 
jahanpiir, founded by Dilir Khan and his 
brother. The special attention which he 
devotes to the history of Bengal would lead 
one to suppose that his life had been chiefly 
spent in that province. 

Besides numerous authorities, of which 
he gives an imposing list in his preface, the 

author professes to have availed himself of 
oral information obtained from his father, 
uncle, brothers, and other relatives. 

An account of the work, with a few ex- 
tracts, will be found in Elliot's History, 
vol. viii. pp. 376 — 393. Other extracts trans- 
lated by Munshi Sadasuk'h are preserved in

the only MS. known, which was in the pos- 
session of a descendant of the author.

the installation of Shah 'Alam in Dehli, to-

ceived and bestowed by him on that occasion. 

This appendix is evidently a later addition. 
The author's account of Bengal stops at A.H. 
1186, and his history of Shah 'Alam one year 
earlier. He refers, moreover, incidentally, 
fol. 212 h, to Mubarak ud-Daulah (A.H. 1183 
— 1208) as being at the timo of writing the 
nominal Kazim of Bengal.

The author was a native of Mirath, where 
his forefathers held the oflioe of Chaudhari 
and Kammgo. He was in his twentieth 
year when he lost his grandfather, the Divan 
Mukund Rai, who died in Mirath, A.H. 1143 
(see fol. 27 b). He must therefore have been 
born in A.H. 1123, and allows himself some 
latitude when he says in his preface, written 
in A.H. 1199, that he was then eighty years 
of age. He proceeded to Dehli shortly after 
the invasion of Nadir Shrdi, A.H. 1151, and, 
some years later, entered the service of 
Navvai) Kasim 'Ali Khan B. Kasim Khan, 
father-in-law and Khansaman of Najm ud- 

Daulah Muhammad Ishak Khan, a powerful 
Amir vrho held the post of Bakhshi under 
Muhammad Shah and Ahmad Shah, and 
died A.H. 1163 (see Ma'agir ul-Umarii under 
Miitaman ud-Daulah, fol. 556). In A.H. 
1167, his patron Kasim 'Ali Khan having 
repaired from Dehli to Oude and settled in 
Faiziibad, the author accompanied him 
thither, and, after the Amir's decease, which 
soon followed, he remained, down to the 
time of composition, in the service of his 
master's children, viz. a daughter Bakht un- 
Nisii Khanum, a son Shafik 'Ali Khan, and 
the latter's son Husain 'Ali Khan, who con- 
tinued to reside in Paizabad. He gave to 
his work the title of Chahar Gulzar Shuja'i 
in honour of the reigning Navvab Shuja' ud- 
Daulah, from whom he had received signal 

Copious details on the lives of the author 
and his patrons are found scattered in 
the preface and the body of the work. An 
abstract of his biography and a statement 
of the contents of this history will be 
found, with some extracts, in Elliot's History, 
vol. viii. pp. 204 — 231. Portions of the 
work translated by Munshi Sadasuk'h Lai 
are preserved in Add. 30,782, foil. 113—205. 

The Chahrir Gulzar is divided into five 
books (Chaman), the first four of which 
treat of the past ages of Hindu legend. The 
fifth, which alone contains historical matter, 
consists of two parts (Safliah), the first of 
which treats, in twelve sections (Kism), of 
of the Hindu Rajahs from Judhishtir to the 
Musulman conquest, and the second, in nine 
Kisms, of the Muslim sovereigns. The 
ninth of the last mentioned Kisms comprises 
the history of the Timurides from Humayiin 
to Shah 'Alam. 

The present volume contains the author's 
preface, with a full statement of the contents 
of the entire work, foil. 2 a — 19 a, and 
chapters from the latter part of the ninth 
Kism, relating to the reigns of Muhammad 



Shah, Ahmad Shfih, 'Alamgir II., and Shah 
Alam. The following are those which are 
translated in Elliot's History : — Khsindi Rao

The author describes himself as a Sarsut 
Brahman, of Brahmanabad, Lahore, and an 
inhabitant of Mulla Navah sy tsU, Lucknow. 


He had been attached from his childhood to 
the service of 'Ain ud-Din Ehan, who held 
the government of Bareli, A.H. 1195 — 1199, 
and afterwards that of Gurakhpur, and to 
whom his father Gurdas Singh acted as 
Na'ib. He was married to a grand-daughter 
of Rajah Majlis Ram, Divan of Kamar ud- 
Din Khan, shortly after the Rajah's death 
in A.H. 1196 (see foil. 209, 168). 

The work is dedicated to the reigning 
Navvab of Oude, Vazir Saadat 'Ali Khan, and 
A.H. 1221 is incidentally mentioned, fol. 
31, as the date of composition. 

It is divided into four parts (Fasl), as 
follows : — 

I. Early Rajahs, according to the Mahab- 
hiirat and to the Subh i Sadik, fol. 6 h. 

II. Sultans of Dehli from Malunfid 
Ghaznavi to Shah 'Alam, fol. 31 a. The 
account of the reign of Muhammad Shidi 
includes separate notices on eleven of the 
principal Amirs of his time, foil. 155 — 171. 
The history of the succeeding reigns is

had left Dehli, at the age of 65 years, to 
proceed to Ilahabad, where he \vrote the

mentioned in several places as the current 
rear. The work consists of two volumes 
"(Jild). The first comprises the history of 
the Hindu Rajahs, the Ghaznavis, the kings 
of Dehli, and the Timurides. The second, 
beginning fol. 639 a, treats of the local

The author belonged to a branch of the 
Tabataba'i Sayyids, who had come from 
Isfahiin to India in the time of Bahadur Shrdi 
and had followed the fortunes of Safdar 
Jang and his successors the Navvabs of 
Oude. His great grandfather Sayyid Mur- 
taza Khan, entitled Mukhtar ud-Daulah, 
Avas at the head of affairs in Oude during 
the first years of Asaf ud-Daulah (fol. 
299 V), and his father was, under Akbar II., 
the chief minister of the Dehli Court. When 
the latter died, in A.H. 1227, Muhammad 
Riza, who had held for nine years the post 
of collector in Bareli, was called to Dehli, 
and succeeded to his father's title and offices 

(fol. 186 rt). 

Erom the author's account of his life in 
his Naghmah i "Andahb, Or. 1811, fol. 184, 
we gather the following additional par- 
ticulars. He was born in Patnah, where 
his father was then residing as Na'ib of 
Biluir, and was eight years old when the 
latter went back to Lucknow. When, later 
in life, he had succeeded to his father s office 
as treasurer and steward to the Emperor of 
Dehli, he discharged these duties during 
ein-ht years, and was then transferred, 
through the influence of Sir Charles T. Met- 
calfe, to Nagpur, where he filled for seven 
years the post of Divan to Rajah Raghoji. 
Afterwards he returned to private life and to 
his favourite literary pursuits in Lucknow. 

There he still was actively engaged in 



revising and enlarging his voluminous his- 
torical compositions when Sir H. Elliot 
wrote the notice of his works which will he 
found in the History of India, vol. viii. 
pp. 432—410.

for Sir H. Elliot hy the author, with a full

tracts from the same work are to be found 
in Add. 1743, foil. 166—184, and Add. 1752, 
foil. 165 — 122. 

The present work forms, according to the 
preface, only a part, namely the fifth Daftar, 
of a voluminous historical encyclopfedia en- 
titled ^li-j ji-. (see Elliot, vol. viii. p. 433). It 
contains, in a condensed form, the matters ex- 
posed at greater length in the third Daftar, 
■■^^\ and the fourth Daftar, ^ili.. 

i^-ibj)!, with considerable additions which 
bring down the history to a date by thirteen 
years later. It was completed in A.ll. 1264, 
a date expressed by the numerical value of 
the title. 

The Akhbarat i Hind includes a full and 
minute account of the period of dissolution 
of the Moghul empire, from the reign of 
Earrukhsiyar to the time of composition. 
It is chiefly based, for the last sixty years, 
on oral information received hy the author 
from his father and uncle, and on his per-

Eajavali, a chronological sketch of the 
Hindu Riijahs from Judhishtir to the in- 
vasion of Shihrdj ud-Din Ghuri, translated 
into Persian by Vali. 

It has been already stated, p. 855 a, that 
tlie translator, who designates himself by 
the poetical surname Vali, is called in some 
copies Banv.ali Das, in others Bhavani Das. 
These names belong to two distinct persons, 
the first of whom is the real author of the 
Persian Eiijavali; for Banvali Das, surnamed 
Vali, who wrote A.H. 1073 a translation of 
the Prabodha Chandrodaya entitled Gulzar 
i Hal (see Or. 2016, iii.), states in the pre- 
face of that work that he had availed himself 
of the assistance of Bhavani D;is. 

Another account of the Eajavali, ho we rer, is 
given by Sujan Rai, who mentions that work 
as one of the sources of his Khulasat ut-Tava- 
rikh. According to him it had been origi- 
nally written in the Hindu tongue by Misra 
Bidyiidhar, and was translated into Persian 



by Nibahu Rrim, the chosen disciple of Vali 
Earn {i.e. Banvani Das). In the subscription 
of the present copy the author is called Vali 
Riim Dara-Shikiihi. 

An appendix, foil. 38 — 89, contains the 
chronology of the Muslim rulers of Hindu- 
stan, taken from the Lubb ut-Tavarikh i 
Hind (see p. 228 h), and brought down to 
the reign of Muhammad Shilh, A.H. 1133.

The author, who calls himself a native of 
Parsrur, Panjrdj, states that, in the reign of 
Parrukhsiyar, he had accompanied Rajah 
Muhkim Singh, to whoso service he was 
attached in the capacity of Munshi, on a 
journey to Marwar. A work entitled Hush- 
faza by Muhammad Tahir Kashmiri, 

which was there eagerly perused by himself 
and his friends, inspired him with a desire 
to treat the same subject, viz. the Hindu 
records, more fully, and thus grew up the 
present work, which was compiled from the 
Ramfiyan, Mahabharat, Bhagavat, and Hari- 
vansa. The date of composition, A.H. 1125, 
is iixed by the chronogram ^Jb, ^1^1 j^i)/. 
But it is stated at the end that the work 
was completed A.H. llSli, and the list of 
the kings of Dehli, with which it concludes, 
is brought down to Muhammad Shah. 

It is divided into four Babs as follows : — 

1. Creation and ages of the world, fol. 4 5. 

2. The ten Avatars, fol. 6 «. 3. Events 
recorded in the Ilarivansa Parana, fol. 99 h.

The author, whose historical work, Mun- 
takhab ut-Tavririkli, has been mentioned 
p. 914 a, states incidentally in the body of 
the work, fol. 266 b, that in the time of Na- 
jaf Khan he held the office of Sar-rishtahdar, 
in the district of Agra. In another passage, 
fol. 301, he speaks of his personal ac- 
quaintance with the principal poets of his 
time, such as Sauda, Mirza Katil, and Mir 
Taki in Lucknow, KhwSjah Mir Dard in 
Dehli, and others. The approximate date of 
composition is fixed by the statement, fol. 
262, that 1280 years bad elapsed since the 
beginning of Islaraism, and an occurrence of 
A.n. 1234 is mentioned on fol. 180 b. 

In the preface the author reflects upon 
the injustice of stigmatizing as infidel (Mul- 
hid or Kfifir) any man who, whether Hindu, 
Muslim, Jew, or Christian, acknowledges 
one supreme God, and upon the irrelevancy 
of the points which divide the various con-

OF DEHLI. 919 

The work has been printed in the Biblio- 
theca Indica, Calcutta, 1860—1862. For 
the account given of it by its continuator, 
Shams i Siraj, and a notice on the author, 
see above, pp. 242 a and 333 b. 

Ziya states in the preface, p. 23 of the 
printed edition, that he completed his work- 
A.H. 758, and towards the end, ib., p. 573, 
that he was then seventy-four years of age. 
In another passage, p. 125, he complains 
bitterly of his loss of royal favour and of the 
state of poverty to which he was reduced. 
Although he knew Firuz Shah to be fond of 
history and well versed in the records of the 
past, having been banished from Coui't by 
his enemies, he had no means of placing 
under the eyes of his sovereign " this match- 
less chronicle," adorned though it was witli 
His Majestj^'s august name and a record of 
his glorious deeds, and was consequently de- 
prived of the reward which was his due. 

The Tarikh i F^iriizshahi, which was de- 
signed by the author as a continuation of 
the Tabakat i Nfisiri (see p. 72 a), begins 
with tlie accession of Gliiyas ud-Din Balban, 
whose early career is recorded in the latter 
work, and comes down to the sixth year of 
Firiiz Shah, embraciug eight successive reigns 
and a period of ninety-five years. It purports 
to be founded on information received by the 
author from his father Muayyad irl-Mulk, his 
grandfather, and other trustworthy persons, 
and, for the latter period, extending from the 
reign of Jalal ud-Din Firuz to the date of 
composition, upon his personal recollections. 
It is, for tlie time which it covers, the prin- 
cipal authority of the Tabakat i Akbar- 
shahi and Tarikh i Firishtah. 

A translation by Professor Dowson of the 
entire work, Avith the exception of passages 
of little historical importance, has been 
printed in Elliot's History of India, vol. iii. 
pp. 97—268. The reign of 'Ala ud-Din has

The last chapter is subdivided into eleven 
sections called Mukaddimah, the first seven 
of which are alone found in the present copy, 
as follows : — I. Accession of Eiruz Shah, fol. 
262 b. II. His march from Sivistan to Dehli, 
fol. 265 b. III. His noble qualities, fol. 270 a. 
IV. His liberalities, fol. 274 a. V. His 
buildings, fol. 275 h. VI. His canals, fol. 
278 a. VII. His rules of government, fol. 
280 a. 

This last section breaks off, fol. 284, at a 
passage corresponding to page 581, line 4, 
of the printed text. The next following 
leaves, foil. 285—294, which have been sup- 
plied by a later hand, contain an abridged 
recension of the seventh and eighth Mukaddi- 
mahs, and another section which, although 
headed Mukaddimah IX., is in reality a por- 
tion of Mukaddimah VII., corresponding to 
pp. 575 — 581 of the printed text. 

This valuable MS., which, although not 
free from mistakes, might servo in many in- 
stances to correct the Calcutta edition, bears 
on fol. 16 the seal of llamidah Banii, the 
wife of Humayun and mother of Akbar, 
dated A.H. 957: i" J\ o:? s.ii-=.. 
The first page is covered with 'Arz-Didahs 
and seals of successive librarians of Shah- 
jahan and Dara Shikiih. 

It has several small gaps, apparently due 
to the accidental loss of a few lines in the 
MS. from which it was transcribed, and the 
following more extensive lacunce: three 
leaves missing after fol. 18, corresponding 

to pp. 26 — 32 of the printed text, one after 
fol. 113 (pp. 211, 212), two after fol. 115 
(pp. 216—220), one after fol. 117 (pp. 224— 
226), and six after fol. 142 (pp. 275—287). 

A slip inserted at the end of the volume 
contains a list drawn up in Persian of lacunas 
in the present copy, which Sir Henry Elliot 
wished to have filled up in Lucknow. 

Appended to the Tririkh i Eirrizshahi is a

in which the royal author, Eiriiz Shah, who 
there calls himself Eiriiz B. Rajab, servant of 
Muhammad Shah B. Tughluk Shah, records 
the edicts and ordinances of his reign, the 
abuses and evil practices which he had put 
down, the buildings, monuments, and works of 
public utility, which he had carried out.

It is stated in the Tabakat i Akbarshahi, 
Add. 6543, fol. 97, and in Tarikh i Eirishtah, 
vol. i. p. 271, that this record, the substance 
of which is given in both works, had been 
engraved by Eiruz Shah's order on the eight 
faces of an octogon-shaped cupola erected by 
him on the mosque of Eiruzabad (see Elliot's 
History, vol. iii. p. 302).

An extract from a history of the Lodi and 
Sur dynasties, by Ahmad Yadgar. 

An account of the work, with extensive ex- 
tracts, will be found in Elliot's History, vol. v. 
pp. 1 — 6G. It is there stated that the author 
describes himself in his preface as an old ser- 
vant of the Siir kings, and that he had written 
a history of the Afghan Sultans by order of 
Da'Cid Shah. But the present work is of 
much later date. Sir H. Elliot held it to be 
posterior to the Tarikh i Da'fidi (see p. 243 a), 
which it generally follows closely, and his 
conclusion is confirmed by the fact that the 
author quotes as one of his sources the 
Ma'din ul-Akhbar i Alimadi, a work written 
under Jahiingir about A.H. 1021—1023 (see 
p. 888 a). 

In the present extract, which contains the 
history of Humayun from his accession to 
his arrival at Baba Hsji (A.H. 949), the 
author copies with few alterations the cor- 
responding portion of the Tabakat i Akbar- 
shahi, a translation of which will be found in 
Elliot's History, vol. v. pp. 187—217.

This is the extremely scarce first volume 
of the Ikbal Niimah, the well-known third

Jahangir, has been described p. 255 a. The 
author mentions in the preface the following 
works as his sources : the Akbar Namah of 
Abul Eazl, the Tabakat i Akbari of Nizam 
ud-Din Ahmad Bakhshi, and a history of 
Akbar's reign by Khwrijah 'Ata Beg Kazvini, 
which had been loft unfinished. He then 
proceeds to state that the present work was 
completed in Kashmir, A.H. 1029, in the 
lath solar year of Jahangir's reign, and 
that it consists of three volumes (Jild), as 
follows : — I. Ancestors of Akbar. II. Eeign 
of Akbar. III. Eeign of Jahangir. See 
Aunier, Munich Catalogue, p. 92.

Another translation of the Memoirs of 
Babar, the same that has been described, 
without author's name, p. 246 a. 

This version, which is written in an ornate 
and rhetorical style, is due, as has been 
shown by Prof. Dowson, History of India, 
vol. iv. p. 288, to Shaikh Zain, a contemporary 
of Babar often mentioned in the Memoirs 
(see Erskine's translation, pp. 291, 308 and 
359), and is therefore much earlier than the 
better known translation written A.H. 998 
by Mirza 'Abd ur-Rahim (see p. 244 a). 

Shaikh Zain ud-Din Khwafi, who in his 
verses took the name of Vafa'i, was, ac-

the famous saint Shaikh Zain ud-Din Khwafi, 
who died of the plague in Herat, A.H. 838 
(see Matla' us-Sa'dain, fol. 179). He held 
the office of Sadr" in the reign of Babar, and 
was known as an elegant poet. Besides 
translating the Vaki'at i Babari, he is said to 
have written a history of the conquest of 
India, with an account of the wonders of that 
country. He died A.H. 940, and was buried 
in the Madrasah which he had built in Agra.

The editor says in the epilogue, fol. 205 b, 
that the author, Mihtar Jauhar, who had for 
a long period been engaged in compiling the 
rougli drafts of his memoirs, had requested 
him to put them into a shape more worthy 
of the dignity of historical composition, with 
a view to the presentation of the work to 
Akbar. Although the substance of this re- 
cension agrees in the main with that of the 
original work, its form is considerably altered. 
The plain language of the Aftabchi has given 
way to the ornate and laboured style of a 
Court-chronicler. The work is generally ex- 
panded, and the narrative in many parts more 
circumstantial. A new preface, with dedi- 
cation to Akbar, has been prefixed, and the 
passages relating to that prince are brought 
into prominence and made the occasions of 
rhetorical display.

subdivided into chapters (Fasl). The fol-

A continuation of the Akbar Namah, con-

47th year to the emperor's death. 

Author : "Inayat Ullah Muhibb Ali, Oj.'jc 

Beg. J jjb O^Wi »S= \i\ j\ 

After a wordy preamble, the beginning of 
which is taken from the Khatimah of the 
Akbar Namah (Lucknow edition, vol. iii. 
p. 867), the author says, fol. 12 b, that, as 
the chronicle of Abul-Fazl stopped short at 
the -leth year of Akbar, and as the account 
of the entire reign given by Mu'tamad 
Khan Muhammad Sharif in his Ikbrd Namah 
(see p. 923 a) was short and incomplete, 
he had resolved to write this history of the 
latter part of the reign, as an appendix to 
the second Daftar of the Akbar Namah, and 
in imitation of the style of Abul-Fazl, of 
which he had been from his youth upwards 
an ardent admirer. 

As the Ikbal-Namah referred to in the 
above passage was not completed until after 


the death of Jahangir, the present work 
cannot have been written before the reign 
of Shiihjahrm. It is quite distinct from the 
Takmilah i Akbar Namah described in Elliot's 
History of India, vol. vi. pp. 103 — 115, and 
appears, from a comparison with the extracts 
there given, to be much fuller. 

The latter work is ascribed to "Shaikh 
'Inayat Ullah or Muhammad Salili." This 
should probably be read: "Shaikh 'Inayat 
Ullah and Muhammad Salih;" for it is 
known, and has been already stated, p. 263 a, 
that Shaikh 'Inayat Ullah Kanbfi, the author 
of Bahar i Diinish, and his younger brother 
Muhammad Srdih, were both engaged on 
historical compositions in the reign of Shah- 

In this preface to the translation of Ain i 
Akhari, p. 30, Blochmann mentions a con- 
tinuation of the Akbar Namah, in two copies 
of which the author was called, as in the 
present MS., 'Inayat Ullah Muhibb "Ali. 

Another copy of the present work is found 
in Or. 1858, foil. 5—64. It has, however, 
no preface, and a modern title on the fly-leaf 
ascribes the work to Shaikh 'Abd us-Samad, 
a nephew of Abul-Eazl and the editor of his 
letters (see p. 396 a).

The author follows, as his main authority, 
the Akbar Namah of Abul Tazl, which he 
condenses by eliminating its rhetorical am- 
plifications. As additional sources he quotes 
the Muntakhab ut-Tavarikh of Badfi'uni, 
Tabakat i Akbari, Tirishtah, the Akbar 
Namah of Ilahdad Faizi, Maagir ul-Umara 
with its Takmilah, and the four Daftars of 
the epistolary (Munsha'at) of Abul-Fazl, the 
fourth of which he describes as very rare. 
He adds that he had undertaken the com- 
pilation at the instance of Mr. William 

The Savanih i Akbari is mentioned by 
Mr. Blochmann in his translation of the Ain 
i Akbari, p. 316, note, where it is described 
as " perhaps the only critical historical work 
written by a native." Compare Elliot's 
History of India, vol. viii. p. 193. 

Haidar, surnamed Amir, Husaini Vasiti 
Balgrami is also the author of a poetical 
glossary written A.H. 1189, and entitled 
Tahkik ul-Istilahat (Or. 2187), from the 
preface of which it appears that he was a 
grandson of the poet Mir Ghulam "Ali Azad 
(see p. 373 a). Two grammatical treatises 
by him, the first of which is dated A.H. 
1214, have been noticed p. 857 b.

This history follows, like the Padishah 
Namah of Amiu, the chronological system 
which prevailed during the first ten years of 
Shahjahan's reign, i.e. the solar years and 
Persian months (see p. 259 a), and embraces, 
therefore, a period extending from the 28th 
of Sha'ban, A.H. 1041, to the 11th of Shav- 
val, A.H. 1045. It is much more pro- 
lix than the corresponding portion of the 
work of Amin, Or. 173, foil. 245—366.

copy examined by Ziya ud-Din Khan, Or.

Mirza Jalal as very scarce, and adds that none 
but Shaikh Abul-Fazl ever wrote history with 
equal elegance.

The four Chamans, beginning respectively 
on foil. 39 a, 73 5, 86 b, and 109 a, are pre-

It contains an account of the occasions 
on which the author was admitted to the 
emperor's presence to recite his verses, and a 
prolix description of the daily occupations 
of Shahjahan, of his exalted qualities, and 
of the splendours of his court. The author's 
first introduction to Court took place in 
Sirhind, on the Nauruz festival, when Shiili- 
jahan was preparing for the conquest of 
Badakhshan (A.H. 1055).

History of the reign of Muhammad A'zam 

Author : Kamraj son of Nain Singh B. 
Bindralian, j^jj ^ir*^ 

Beg. M }=■ J^i^ 

The author describes himself as a Kayath 
of the Saksmah tribe, an inhabitant of Pha- 
phuiid (Thornton's Puhpoond, district of 
Etawa), and a born servant of Muhammad 
A'zam Shtili. Of his father Nain Singh it is 
incidentally stated, fol. 20 a, that he served 
as Pishdast in the Valasludii artillery which 
accompanied that prince on his way to Miil- 
vah in A. II. 1118, and it is added that his 
forefathers had been for tliree generations 
in the imperial service. 

Kamraj wrote evidently sliortly after the 


events he describes, and, as he says, in order 
to discharge a debt of gratitude to his 
generous sovereign. He professes to have 
obtained his information from the official 
chroniclers, jj«i=-^lSo ji'jj. 

The work gives, in a rather ornate and 
diffuse style, an extremely circumstantial 
account of the short-lived rule of the ill- 
fated A'zam Shah.

Mir Mubarak Ullah was the second son of 
Mir Ishak Iriidat Khan, who died as Nazim 
of Oude, A.H. 1068, and grandson of A'zam 
Khan Mir Muhammad Bakir, of Savah, an 
Amir of Jahangir's reign. In the fortieth 
year of Aurangzib he received the title of 
Iradat Khan, previously borne by his father, 
and the oifice of Faujdar of Aurangabad. 
He held high commands under the successors 
of Aurangzib, and took an active share in the 
transactions of that troubled period, until 
his death, which happened in the reign of 
Farrukhsiyar, according to Siraj, Oude Cata- 
logue, p. 151, or as stated in Nataij ul-Afkar, 
Or. 2060, fol. 210, A.H. 1128. In poetry ho 
was a pupil of Muhammad Zaman Rasikh, 
and loft a Divan in which he used the 

takhallus 'Vazili. See Tazkirat ul-Umara

A condensed translation by Jonathan 
Scott has been published in London 1780 . 
An account of the work by Sir H. Elliot and

of India, vol. vii., p. 534 — 544. 

In a preface, the main part of which has 
been translated by Professor Dowson, I. c, 
p. 535, the author gives A.H. 1126 as the 
date of composition, adding that he was then 
in the sixty-seventh year of his life (not the 
sixty-fourth, as in Prof. Dowson's version). 
But in an epilogue found in Or. 2054, fol. 
138, he states that the memoirs, completed 
at the above date, had been commenced in 
Adoni, A.H. 1118. 

The work, to which no title is given in the 
preface, is inscribed on the fly-leaf of the

The author calls himself in the preface 
'Ibrat i Zuhur, or 'Ibrat son of Zuhur, both 
appellations being poetical sm-names. His 
real name appears, as given above, in an 
epilogue transcribed from a copy belonging 
to Faldr Nur ud-DTn, and prefixed to the 
present MS., foil. 2 and 3. The author 
states there that the year in which the work 
was completed was to be found in its title 
combined with bis own name, i. e. in the 
words ^^'d sx^ ciJj-:^-, which give 

A.H. 1135. 

Mir Muhammad Kasim repaired, as stated 
in the preface, A.H. 1130, from his native 
place, Lahore, to the capital in search of em- 
ployment, and some time after the death of 
Farrukhsiyar he entered as Divan into the 
service of a powerful patron (the Amir ul- 
Umara Sayyid Husain 'Ali Khan; see the 
subscription of Or. 1935). He wrote the 
present work in Agra, at the request of 
one of the two sons of his protector. 

The history comprises the reigns of Baha- 
dur Shah, Jahandrir Shah, and Farrukhsiyar; 
it concludes with the downfall of the Sayyids 

and the death of Kutb ul-Mulk. A full 
statement of the contents, with short extracts, 
will be found in Elliot's History, vol. vii.

An anonymous work relating to the down- 
fall of the Sayyids, and the early part of the 
reign of Muhammad Shah. 

Beg. . >\>o Of*! J 

The author, whose name does not appear, 
had access to the court of Muhammad Shiili ; 
he relates in some instances, fol. 12 b, 46 b, 
particulars which he had heard from His 
Majesty's own lips. He devotes, fol. 24 b, a 
special notice to Sa'd ud-Din Khan, who ap- 
pears to have been his patron. Wo learn 
from it that the said Amir was appointed 
Bakhshi of the imperial Risalah in the 
second year of the reign, and was afterwards 
successively promoted to tlie offices of Court- 
Steward and Master of the Artillery. 

The work is not a connected narrative ; it 
consists, as stated in the epilogue and in 
another passage, foil. 10 b, of detached chap- 
ters, taken from a full history which the 
author had not yet thought advisable to 
publish. It is written in the diffuse and 
stilted style of court-historiography. 

Contents: — Causes of the destruction of the 
deluded traitors (the two Sayyids), and just 
punishment of the ungrateful rebels, fol. 3 b.

The author, who is called in the sub- 
scription Muhammad Muhsin Siddild, men- 
tions incidentally, fol. 171 b, Bijnaur, a town 
of Oude, as his native place. He states, foil. 
45 b — 48 a, that he had written this history 
at the request of Shaikh 'Ala ud-Din, who 
had been the companion of the gallant Amir 
ul-TJmara Samsam ud-Daulah Khan Dauran 
(see above, p. 277 b), and from whose lips he 
had often heard the narrative of the events 
therein recorded. He adds that the work 
was called Jauhar i Samsiim, in allusion to 
the Amir's exalted name (Samsam ud-Daulah). 
After narrating the massacre of Dehli, the 
author wished, as he says in the epilogue, 
fol. 163 6, to return the "flaming sword" 
(Samsam) to the scabbard, but was induced 
by the advice of his spiritual guide, Shah 
Badr i 'Alam, Khalifah of Haflz Abul Kasim, 
to add a sketch of the preceding reigns. 
The date of composition, A.H. 1153, is given 
in some verses at the end. 

The style is wordy and pretentious. Ma- 
jor A. R. Fuller, who translated the work for 

Sir H. Elliot (Add. 30,724, foil. 1—80), has 
judiciously omitted many pages of rhetorical

This work, which has neither preface nor 
title, is endorsed ^Ji. The author 

does not give his name, nor does he make, 
in the course of the history, any reference to 
himself. It is evident, however, from the 
minute and circumstantial character of his 
narrative, that he lived in Dehli and had 
witnessed the events recorded. But he was 
no courtier ; he passes a severe judgment on 
the character of the young and dissolute 
emperor, and speaks with undisguised dis- 
like and contempt of some of the leading 
men of his reign, especially of the Vazir 



Abul-Mansur Khan Safdar Jang, of "Tmad 
Til-Mulk, and of "Akibat Malimiid Klican.

A history of the reign of Alamgir II., 
without preface or author's name, with the 
heading : 

This is a minute, and, evidently, a con- 
temporary record, in which the transactions 
of the reign are stated with great chrono- 
logical precision, and almost from day to 
day, from the accession of "Alamgir II. on 
the 10th of Sha'ban, A.H. 1167, to his death, 
on the 8th of Rabi" II., A.H. 1173. The 
regnal years, beginning on the first of Sha'- 
ban, form the only division of the work. 
They begin as follows : Second year (A.H. 
1168-9), fol. 51. Third year, fol. 71. Fourth 
year, fol. 118. Fifth year, fol. 160. Sixth 
year, fol. 203.

It begins with the departure of Shah 'Alam 
from Ilahabad on his way to Dehli (A.H. 
1184). The events of the reign are recorded 
year by year down to the 24th year (A.H. 
1196). The narrative comes to an abrupt 
close in the account of the struggle which 
resulted in the arrest of Najaf Kuli Khan 
by MirzS Shafi" Khan, the last date men- 
tioned being the 2nd of Shavval, A.H. 1196. 

The author is sometimes called Manii Lrd. 
W. Franklin, who mentions this work among 
his authorities for the " History of Shah 
Aulum," p. 198, designates it as a " MS. of 
Munnoo Loll, a Hindoo, containing the 
thirteen first years of the reign." See also

History of the life and reign of Muhammad 
Shah, written A.H. 1196. 

Author: Muhammad Bakhsh, poetically 
surnamed Ashiib, L_j^b (_>o),j5* ijiii 

Beg. — j> ^'O . . . ijrA'-'S^ 't^j ^ '^♦^ 

The author hod been actively engaged in 
the military operations of his time. Ac- 
cording to his own statement, fol. 23 b, he 
fought by the side of Mu'in ul-Mulk in his 
war against Ahmad Shah Abdali, and wrote 
a Masnavi, entitled Kilr NSmah, to celebrate 
his victory (A.H. 1162). He then joined 
Mu'in ul-Mulk's brother, the Ivhankhanan 
(Intizam ud-Daulah, Vazir of Ahmad Shah, 
who died A.H. 1167), in his contest against 
Safdar Jang, and obtained from him a com- 
mand of two thousand and the title of Kasvar 
Khan, previously borne by his grandfather, 
to which, however, "as being above his 
deserts," he preferred the simple appellation 
of Mirza Muhammad Bakhsh (fol. 24). He 
terminated his official career under the Amir 
ul-Umara 'Imad ul-Mulk Ghilzi ud-Din Khan. 

While living in retirement at Luoknow 
lie met, in the house of Col. Pollier, Mr. 
Jonathan Scott, and, upon that gentleman's 
pressing invitation, he set out, on the 
27th of Rajab, A.H. 1196, to join him in Ila- 
habad, in order to devote himself to the com- 
position of the present work, which he wrote 
in the same year. From the abstract given 
in the preface, it appears to have been in- 
tended to embrace the period extending from 
the death of Farrukhsiyar to the time of 
composition. The present copy, however, 
as well as another in the library of the India 
Of&ce, ends with a record of the death of 
Nadir Shah (A.H. 1160) and of Zakariyya 
Khan (A.H. 1158). It is doubtful whether 
the author, who was then much advanced 
in years, lived to carry out his original plan. 

He had previously written, while staying 
in Bharatpur, an historical compendium in 

700 distichs, entitled Falak-ashiib, which 
came down to the death of Hflfiz Rahmat 
Khan (A.H. 1188), and an Arabic Kasidah 
of similar import (fol. 10 b). 

The following additional particulars are 
supplied by Talib Khan in the Khulasat ul- 
Afkar, Add. 18,542, fol. 357 b. Muhammad 
Bakhsh came of a Turkish family of the 
Barlas tribe, which had migrated from Ba- 
dakhshan to India in the time of Akbar. He 
was born in Dehli, served under I'timad ud- 
Daulah Kamar ud-Din Khan, and fought 
with distinction in the wars with the Abdalis. 
After acting for some time as JMunshi to the 
Yazir 'Imad ul-Mulk, he repaired to Lucknow, 
where he applied himself to poetry, and died 
in a state of poverty, A.H. 1199. His KuUi- 
yat, consisting of about fifty thousand Baits, 
include a poem on the conquest of Syria 
i^U^ij, in which he made Eirdausi the 
object of violent attacks. 

An account of the present work, with 
a short extract, will be found in Elliot's 
History, vol. viii. p. 232. 

A discursive preface, occupying no less 
than fifty closely written pages, begins witli 
a review of the official and private records 
of the Timuride dynasty. Eor the period 
extending from the death of Aurangzib to 
the accession of Muhammad Shah the author 
quotes two works, the history of Mubarak 
Vazih (see p. 938 a), on which he passes a 
severe judgment, and the memoirs of Mirza 
Muhammad Sahib, son of Mu'tamad Khan, 
the author's master and maternal uncle 
(see foil. 35 a, 248 b), of which he speaks 
in the highest terms. Muhammad Shah 
had no taste for history, and his Amirs did 
nothing for the encouragement of serious 
writers. Two works, however, are mentioned 
for that period, a Muhammad Shah Namah, 
and a general history, including a detailed 
account of that emperor's reign, both by 
Mirza Muhsin Munnjjim Bfishi, of Haidar- 
bad, afterwards Muhammad Mu'nsin Khan, 



who had submitted them for revision to 
Mirza Muhammad; but botli were lost in 
the plunder of Dehli by the Abdalis. Another 
work, noticed farther on, fol. 27 a, is a 
Tarikh i Muhammad Shahi, by an unknown 
writer, evidently a dependant of Khandauran 
(see above, p. 277 b), which the author has 
followed for the first fourteen years of the 

In the body of the work are found extracts 
from two works not referred to in the pre- 
face, viz. a history by Chandidas, a convert 
to Islamism, entitled Kamvar Khan, com- 
prising the first six years of the reign of 
Muhammad Shall (see p. 274 b), and the 
Khizanali i 'Amirah of Azad (see p. 373 b). 
For the later period the author depended ex- 
clusively on his own recollections, so that his 
work has, to a great extent, the value of a 
personal narrative, but with the drawback 
of a complete want of chronological pre- 

The history proper begins, fol. 27 b, with 
the birth of Muhammad Shah and an account 
of the period anterior to his accession, which 
is recorded on fol. 38 a. A full narrative of 
the events of the reign down to the invasion 
of Nadir Shah fills the rest of the volume.

"Alamgir II., corresponds to foil. 1 — 378 of a 
previously described copy. Add. 24.080. The 
second part, or history of Shah "Alam, Or. 
1658, foil. 2—189, begins at the time of his 
installation in Delili in the 13th year of his 
reign, and concludes with the death of Prince 
Jahandar Shah in Benares, on the 25th of 
Sha'ban, A.H. 1200 (read 1202), the decease 
of 'Umdat ul-Mamalik Majd ud-Daulah, about 
the same time (A.H. 1204j, the defeat of Is- 
ma'il Beg Khan by the Marattas, his sur- 
render to General Perron, and his confine- 
ment in the fortress of Agra, A.H. 1206. 
The Khatimah, foil. 178 a — 189, contains a 
sketch of the character and daily occupa- 
tions of Shah 'Alam, and an enumeration of 
his children. 

The latter part of the same volume, foil. 
190—234, transcribed from another copy, 
fills up an important lacuna of the preceding, 
in which the account of the ruthless pro- 
ceedings of Ghulam Kadir is omitted. It 
relates to the events of A.H. 1199—1203, 
beginning with the arrival of Mr. Harper, 
sent by Governor Sir John Macpherson to the 
Dehli Court, and ending with the flight and 
capture of Ghulam Kadir, and the re-instating 
of Shrdi 'Alam upon the throne on the 10th 
of Rabi' II., in the 32nd (read 30th) year of 
his reign (A.H. 1203). 

The above is in substantial agreement with 
the conclusion found in a previously described 
copy, Add. 24,080; see p. 282 b.

The author, who has heen mentioned 
p. 311 «, refers frequently in the present 
work to the circumstances of his own life. 
We find him, foil. 112 fi, 149 h, in A.H. 1198 
and 1199, employed as a confidential agent by 
Mr. James Anderson, the British resident in 
the cam J) of Sindhiah, and in constant commu- 
nication with the latter chief, who repeatedly 
tried to entice him to his own service. 
Obliged by a serious illness to take leave of 
Mr. Anderson, he returned in A.H. 1200 to 
his father in his native city, Ilahabad. He 
then attached himself to the fortunes of the 
Shahzsdah Jahandar Shah," the eldest son of 
Shahjahan, whom he assisted in his attempt 
to seize upon the Dehli government, and by 
whom he was treated, according to his own 
statement, as the most trusted friend and 

After leaving the prince's service, he pro- 
ceeded to Lucknow, which he reached in 
Eajab, A.H. 1202, fol. 203 «. But he appears 
to have subsequently returned to Ilahabad ; 
for he states in the preface that he had been 
induced by the renowned munificence of 
Sa'adat 'Ali Khan to repair from his native 
place to the Navvab's residence (Lucknow). 
He afterwards settled in Jaunpiir (see 
p. 311 a), where he spent the rest of his life

in the enjoyment of a pension from the 
British Government. He died about the 
year 1827. See Elliot's History of India, 
vol. viii. pp. 237 — 254, where an account of 
the work is given, with some extracts, by 
Prof. Dowson. 

Khair ud-Din is frequently designated 
in the course of his narrative as Maulavi 
Khair ud-Din, or Maulavi Sahib, while 
his brothers, who held military commands, 
had the title of Khan ; they are called 
Salah ud-Din Khan, NCir UUah Khan, and 
Amr UUah Khan. 

The 'Ibrat Namah is the fullest and most 
accurate account we possess of the chequered 
career and troubled times of Sh.^ili 'Alam, 
and it has all the value of a contemporary 
record, penned by one who had taken an 
active share in some of the principal trans- 
actions of tho period, and was personally 
acquainted with the most prominent actors 
on the scene. 

The author states in the preface that he 
had been long devoted to historical pursuits, 
and had written several works and tracts on 
various other branches of learning. His princi- 
pal aim, he adds, in the present hi.story, was to 
record the atrocious deeds of Ghuliim Kadir, 
who, for trampling nnder foot tlie majesty 
of the descendants of Timiir, was doomed to 
eternal execration and infamy. After a eu- 
logy on the reigning Navvab of Oude, Sa'adat 
'Ali Khan (A.H. 1212—1229), he dedicates 
to that prince's son, Muhammad 'Ali Khan 
(who subsequently reigned under the name 
of Nasir ud-Daulah, A.H. 1253—1258) this 
history of Shah "Alam, which, for want of an 
appreciating patron, he had hitherto refrained 
from making public. 

The work is stated to consist of an intro- 
duction (Mukaddimah), three books (Daftar), 
and a conclusion ; but the present copy con- 
tains only the Mukaddimah and the first 
two Daftars. 

Contents : — Mukaddimah. Brief history of 



the predecessors of Shall *Alam, from Timur

The two next following years, which are not 
distinguished by separate headings, begin as 
follows: A.H. 1205, fol. 239 a, A.H. 1206, 
fol. 244 a. The last chapter records the 
conquests of Navviib "Ali Bahadur in Bondel- 
khand, and his death. 

In conclusion the author says that, as Shah 
"Alam was still alive and on the throne, he 
could not bring his history to a close, but 
intended, should life be spared him, to de- 
vote a " fourth Daftar " to the continuation 
of his reign, and to the contemporary pro- 
ceedings of the southern (Marattah) chiefs in 
Hindustan, and of the English rulers, espe- 

cially to those of the Lord Marquis Wellesley, 
Governor General (A.H. 1212—1220). 

A miscellaneous volume. Or. 1762, contains 
the preface and some extracts from what must 
be a later recension of the "Ibrat Namah, 
foil. 629—644. There it is said that the second 
volume ( Jild) ends with the death of Ghulam 
Kadir, and that the third comprises anaccount 
of the restoration of Shah 'Alam, of the acces- 
sion ofAkbar Shsh(A.H.1221),and of theEn- 
glisli rule. A history of Shah 'Alam entitled 
'Alam Ashub, by Maulavi Khair ud-Din Mu- 
hammad, is noticed among the MSS. of the 
Amir of Tonk, Or. 1937, fol. 18. The Daf- 
tar III., the only portion described, comprises 
the years 11 — 20 of the reign; judging from 
the rubrics, it appears to be substantially 
identical with the corresponding portion of 
the "Ibrat Namah. A table of contents of 
the second volume of the 'Ibrat Namah, with 
translated extracts, will be found in Add. 
30,710, foil. 368—385.

Shah Kasim Khan, afterwards Khan Za-

The author, evidently one of his dependants, 
mentions on fol. 133 a, A.H. 1017 as the

Kasim had then reached his seventieth year. 
In the introduction, fol. 18 6, he speaks of 
Mirza Ghazi Beg, who had returned in the

still reigning. There are, however, some

The author says in the preface that Mirza 
Muhammad Sslili Tarkhan B. Mirza 'Isa 
Tarkhan, who had been raised by Shiihjahan 
to the rank of Amir, and had succeeded his 
father (as Subahdar of Tattah in A.H. 1061; 
see fol. 200 a), anxious to make himself 
acquainted with the genealogy of his family, 
had desired to be supplied with an early 
record of his forefathers entitled Tarkhan 
Namah. Having failed to discover that 
document, Sayyid JamSl wrote under the 
same title the present work, compiled from 
some well-known historical works enume- 
rated in the preface. 

The date of composition, A.H. 1065, is 
incidentally given in the genealogical tables,

A history of the Khans of Bahawalpur, 
from their origin to A.H. 1224. 

Author : Daulat Rai, son of Lalah 'Izzat 
Eai, ejjc cijJi 

Beg. li^.J^l s.^ j" O^^i' i3 (_)*>^s"' 

The author's father and uncle had been in 
the service of Muhammad Mubarak Khan, 
Navvab of Bahawalpur. Having been dis- 
possessed by that prince's successor of his 
paternal estate, Daulat Rai retired to Multan, 
where he carried on the present composition, 
and subsequently to Haidarabiid in Sind, 
where he entered the service of the Amirs 
Karam 'Ali Khan and Murad 'All Khan. 
He died A.H. 1246 (see Morley's Catalogue, 
p. 90, where a full account of the Mir'at i 
Daulat 'Abbasi is given). Several passages 
of the present and the next work show, how- 
ever, that Daulat Rai was living at the court 
of Bahawalpur under Muhammad Baliawal 
Khan and his successor Sadik Khan, and 
some verses of his composition recited by 
him there are quoted in the latter work, 
where he is designated as Lilali Daulat Rrd 

The name of Daulat i 'Abbasi, applied to 
the rulers of Bahavalpur in the above title, 
is founded upon their alleged descent from 
the Abbasido Khalifs, set forth in this history. 
The Amir Muhammad Baha ud-Din Khan, 
commonly called Bahawal Khan, in whose 
reign the work was written, and whose 
history forms its principal subject, was 
born on the 27th of Safar, A.H. 1166, suc- 
ceeded his uncle Muhammad Mubarak Khan 
on the first of Rabi' IL, A.H. 1186, and died | 

on the first of Rajab, A.H. 1224 (see foil. 87, 
118 and 408). 

The work is divided, as stated in the 
preface, into a TajaUi, or introduction, and 
three chapters called Lam'ah, as follows : — 
TajallT. Conquest of Sind under the Umay- 
yades ; the Abbasides down to the death of 
al-Musta'sim; flight of the Abbaside Sultan 
Ahmad the elder (afterwards al-Mustansir 
Billah) to Egypt, and the expedition of his 
descendant, Sultan Ahmad II., two centuries 
later, to Sind, fol. 5 a. Lam'ah I. History of 
Sultln Ahmad II., and of the Khans who 
succeeded him, down to the death of Mu- 
hammad Mubarak Khan, fol. 13 b. La- 
m'ah II. History of Muhammad Baha ud- 
Din Khan, from his accession in A.H. 1186 
to A.H. 1222, fol. 117 b. Lam'ah III. Con- 
tinuation of his reign. 

In the body of the work, however, the last 
two sections are merged into one, concluding 
with the death of the Khan in A.H. 1224. 
The authorities consulted for the introduc- 
tion are the Rauzat us-Safa, Muntakhab ut- 
Tavarikh, Nadir-Namah, a history of Sind 
and Gujrat, and the third Kism of the Rau- 
zat ul-Ahbilb. In Lam'ah 1. the author relied 
principally on information supplied by Cha- 
kar Khan, and in the succeeding chapters he 
related only such facts as had been ascer- 
tained by him from trustworthy witnesses, 
or had come under his own observation. 

At the end of Lam'ah I. Daulat Rui states 
that he had finished that section in Baliawal- 
pCir on the 5th of Jumada II., A.H. 1224, a 
date expressed, he observes, by the numerical 
value of the title, while we learn from the 
concluding lines of the work that it was 
completed in the month of Safar, A.H. 1227. 

The Mirat i Daulat i 'Abbasi was litho- 
graphed in Dehli, 1850. That edition, which 
differs materially by omissions and additions 
from the present text, is evidently derived 
from a single copy, the defects of which, 
such as the omission of headings, and even 



in one instance, pp. 6 and 7, the accidental 
transposition of folios, have been faithfully

The author states in the introduction that 
he had been designated by the reigning 
prince, Sadik Khan, for the composition of 
this chronicle, and tliat he had been 
directed to embody in the same a record 
of the first two years of the reign left in an 
unfinished state by Lalah Daulat Eai. In 
his account of the second year of the reign, 
A.H. 1225-6, fol. 493 a, Muhammad A'zam 
relates how he was sent by the Khan on a 
mission to the Talpfir Amirs, who were then 
threatening the Bahawalpur territory, and 
subsequently to Multan. 

The history, which for the first four or 
five years of the reign is very full and 
circumstantial, becomes extremely brief [for

The author takes credit in the preface 
for being the first to write a history of the 
Panjab. The date of composition is to be 
found in the title l_>W*^ by the process, 
explained in a versified chronogram, of elimi- 
nating from it all the units, witli the excep- 
tion of the two i_j ; which gives A.H. 1264. 

The work is stated to consist of a Mukad- 
dimah, five books (Daftar), and a Khatimah. 
The contents are as follows: — Mukaddimah. 
Geographical description of the Panjab, 
fol. 3 a. Daftar I. Hindu Rajahs from 
Saduman to Pithaura, fol. 52 h. Daftar II. 
Muslim Sultans, from Mahmud Ghaznavi to

1183). Daftar III. Gurus of the Sikhs, 
from Nfinak to Gobind, and their descen- 
dants, fol. 248 I. Daftar IV. Sikh Sardars

had 'long been desirous to know the origin 
of many ruins and ancient mounds which he 
had observed in that neighbourhood, as well 
as the circumstances of the martyrdom of 
Sayyid 'Ala'l-Hakk ji' > -^i-, whose tomb 
attracted pilgrims to Siyalkot. He had at 
last obtained the desired information from 
a Fakir named Shaikh Jaraal ud-Din, then 
one hundred and forty years of age, whom 

he met at Lahore in the fourth year of the 
reign of Aurangzib (A.H. 1071-2). 

Sayyid 'Ala'l-HakkB. Sayyid Hasan Makki, 
whose history occupies the first part of the 
volume, foil. 3 — 14, was a brother of Sayyid 
Khizr Khan, a favourite Amir of Piruz Shah. 
Having been sent by that sovereign to attack 
the fortress of Kangrah, he was slain in 
battle by the infidels A.H. 757. 

The latter portion of the work deals with 
the floods and the wars which at various 
times, from that period to the reign of 
Sultan Bahlul, had laid waste that part of 
the Panjab.

Beg. si Ijjl g^jly i{ ^_^'.iiib Jjo 

The author, who has been already men- 
tioned, p. 953 «, derived his surname Badhrah, 
from his ancestor Kaka Mai Badhrah, a 
descendant of the Rajahs of AjmTr, who 
held, about A.H. 894, the office of Mahtah, 
or governor, of Siyalkot and Bahlolpur 
(see foil. 182 — 4). He states in the pre- 
face that he was filling the post of 
Kanungo in the Chaklah of Gujrat, when 
Maharajah Guliib Singh took him in his train 
to Jamfm, and appointed him to the Daftar 
of that province. 

After looking in vain for a history of the 
Eajahs of Jamun, he decided to write one 
liimsell', and began collecting materials for 
that purpose. These he found in local tra- 
ditions preserved by native bards and Brah- 
mans, in the personal recollections of old 
people,in notices scattered inhistorical works, 
and in lists of kings preserved by Pandit

History of Kashmir.

Jit / 

Although written as a continuous text, 
this volume is made up of portions of two 
distinct works. The first part, foil. 10 6— 
78 h, which relates to the Hindu period, is 
taken from the history of Haidar Malik (see 
p. 297 b), and corresponds to foil. 3 b — 98 a 
of Add. 8906. The latter part, comprising 
the Muhammadan period, foil. 78 S— 254. a, 
is from the Baharistan i Shahi (seep. 297 a), 
and corresponds to foil. 9 a— 180 a of Add. 

There are, besides, an introduction and an 
appendix which do not belong to either of 
the above works. The introduction, foil. 
2 &— 10 b, treats of the pre-adamitic periods 
of the world, of the lake which once filled 
the vale of Kashmir and was drained, in 
obedience to Solomon's commands, by the 
demon Kash and his daughter Mir, of the 
subsequent period, in which the valley was 
inhabited by men in summer and by Divs in 
winter, and lastly of the numerous idol 
temples erected by the latter. The appendix, 
foil. 251 a — 259 6, relates to some remarkable 
localities in the valley of Kashmir. 

With regard to the Baharistan 1 Shahi, 
although it is brought down to A.H. 1023, 
a passage which occurs on fol. 79 h of the 
present MS., and on fol. 10 a of the older 
copy, Add. 16,706, shows that it was written, 
in part at least, at an earlier period; for the 
author remarks, in reference to the events of 
A.H. 721, that 270 years had elapsed from 
that period to the "present time." This 
would fix the date of composition at A.H.

It is, according to the preface, an abridg- 
ment of the Viiki'at i Kashmir (the preceding 
work), the author of which is here called 
KhwSjah Muhammad A'zam Dedah Maru 
^s>p, enriched with additions derived 
from various historical works, and especially 
from thcMir'at ul-Auliya of Maulana Ahmad 
'AUiimah Kashmiri, a panegyrist of the king 
Zain ul-'Abidin. The latter work, a copy of 
which the author obtained in Etawah, is a 
Persian translation of the Nur Namah, a 
record of the life of Shaikh Nur ud-Din Vali 



Rislii, originally written in the Kashmirian 
language by his disciples. 

The author says that he had added to the 
original histoi'y, composed A.H. 1160, a con- 
tinuation comprising the thirty or forty 
years elapsed since that date. This would 
bring down the date of the present work to 
about A.H. 1200. It is dedicated to Shah 
'Alam, and divided into a Mukaddimah, five 
Tabakahs, and a Khatimah. 

The preface is given entire. The extracts 
come down to the reign of Bahadur Shah, 
which belongs to the fourth Tabakah, and it 
is stated in a note at the beginning that the 
original MS. was imperfect.

The author, whose name does not appear, 
states in a short preamble that he had com- 
piled this work from the most approved his- 
tories, ancient and modern, adding a record 
of his own time. 

The Lubb ut-Tavarikh consists of two 
parts of nearly equal size, the second of 
which is called ^^ci 

The first, or historical part, comprises the 
following periods: — Hindn Rfijahs, fol. 7 a. 
Muslim Sultans, fol. 21 a. Chaks, fol. 27 b. 
Chaghata'is or Timurides, fol. 30 a. The 
Afghan kings or DurrSnis, from A.H. 1166 
to 1234, fol. GO a. The Sings or Sikhs, 

from A.H. 1234 to 1202. 

The last section concludes with the death 
of the governor Ghulam Muhyi ud-Hin in 
Rabi" I., A.H. 1262, the accession of Maharaj 
Gulab Singh under English protectorate in 
the month of Safar of the same year, and the 
installation as governor of Shaikh Imam 
ud-Din, who is stated to have proceeded, 
seven months later, in Zulka'dah A.H. 1262, 
to Rajur to meet Colonel Lawrence, Governor 
of the North Western Provinces. 

The second part, which begins on fol. 68 b, 
and is divided into numerous chapters (Fasl), 
contains a detailed account of the geography, 
administration, revenue, produce, and curio- 
sities of Kashmir and the neighbouring dis-

An account of the Rajahs of Sirmur, with 
the following heading : j\ ci-iiii' i-j'^^ 

Sirmur (Thornton's Sirmour), also called, 
from the name of its chief town, Nahan, is a 
native hill state situated on the upper course 
of the Jumna, and included among the Cis- 
Satlaj states. SecGriflan's Rajas of the Pun- 
jab, pp. 156, 409. 

It is said to have been governed from time 
immemorial by Rajputs of the Surajbansi 
race. Under Badan Singh, the first men- 
tioned by name, who became Rajah in Sam- 
vat 929, the country was laid waste by a 
flood. About Samvat 1123, Bali Parkas, of 



the Jassalmir family, ascended the throne. 
From that time the succession is traced un- 
interruptedly down to Samvat 1872, A.D. 
1815, when, after the expiilsion of the Gor- 
khas, Fath Singh was invested with the 
Eajahship under the title of Maharajah Fatli 
Parkas Bahadur. 

A sketch of the history of Sirmur has been 
given by FVancis Hamilton in his Account 
of Nepal, pp. 302—306. Compare D'Cruz,

his time to religious teaching and literary 
composition. He was near eighty wdicu he

Although the main object of the work is

The author, who had been, as he states, 
twelve years in the Company's service, wrote 
this work at the request of Lieut. John 
Doeswell Shakespeare, second assistant of 
Col. John Lowe (the English resident in 
Lucknovv). The date of composition, A.H. 
1250, is expressed, as he remarks, by the 
above title combined with his own name, 

Padishah Begam, daughter of the astrolo- 
ger Mubashshir Khan, was married in Be- 
nares, A.H. 1209, to Ghrtzi ud-Din Haidar, 
afterwards Shahzaman. This strong-willed 
and ambitious princess, who kept her weak 
husband in awe, played a conspicuous part 
in the intrigues of which the court of Oude 
was the theatre. After the death of her 
husband's son and successor, Sulaiman Jah, 
A.H. 1253, she endeavoured to place upon 
the throne a pretended son of the latter, 
Muhammad Mahdi Faridun Bakht, com- 
monly called Muna- Jan, but was foiled in the 
attempt by the prompt action of Col. Lowe, 
who placed both the Begam and the pre- 
tender in confinement at Cawnpore. This 
event forms the conclusion of tlie present 
narrative, which is virtually, for the period 
to which it relates, a circumstantial history 
of the court of Oude.

The author gives, foil. 248 — 251, an 
account of his ancestors and of his own life. 
He belonged to the Kayast Saksinali tribe, 
and to a family which had served, during 
several generations, the rulers of Oude. His 
grandfather, Eajah Bhagwandas, had filled 
the offices of Divan and of Atalik to Asaf ud- 
Daulah during that prince's minority, and 
was afterwards appointed Nazim of Barell. 
His father, Rrd Balak Ram, acted as Na'ib, or 
deputy, to Maharajah Chhao Lai, and died in 
retirement A.H. 1260. The author, who was 
born in Lucknow, A.H. 1197, went to Cal-

years in the Company's employ, returned to 
Lucknow, A.H. 1230, and took office under 
the crown of Oude. His titles were Munshi

The author's name and the date of compo- 
sition, A.H. 1263, are found in a versified chro- 
nogram at the beginning. The former occurs 
also in the following title, written on the fly- 
leaf: "Brief History of Oude by Syud Ka- 
maloodden Hyder at His Majesty's Observa- 
tory, Lucknow, 1849.'' From the work itself 
we learn that the author had been attached 
as translator to the Lucknow observatory in 
the reign of Nasir ud-Daulah (A.H. 1253 — 
1258), and had already translated no less 
than nineteen scientific works, most of which 
had been printed.

The author's father, Sayyid 'Abd ul-Jalil, 
a member of the ancient family of the Vasiti 
Sayyids, who claim to have been settled since 
A.H. 614 in Balgram, was celebrated for his 
profound knowledge of Arabic and his 
eminent piety. Having taken service under 
Aurangzib, he discharged the duties of Bakh- 
shi and Vaka'i'-Nigar from A.H. 1112 to 
1116 in Gujrat, aad from A.H. 1117 to 1130 
in Bhakhar and Sivistan. He then retired 
to Dehli, where he died, A.H. 1138, at the age 
of sixty-six. 

Sayyid Muhammad, born in Balgram A.H. 
M 2 



1101, was appointed, onhis father's retirement, 
to the same otiice, and held it throughout 
the trouhled period of Niidir Shah's invasion. 
He left Sivistiln A.H. 1155, and in the fol- 
lowing year settled again in his native town, 
whei-e he lived on to an advanced age. 

Mir Gliulam "Ali Azad, who was the son of 
"Abd ul-Jalil's daughter, and the favourite 
pupil of his maternal grandfather, gives in his 
Ma'asir ul-Kiram, Or. 1804, foil. 173, 194, 
detailed notices of him and of the author. His 
statements are fully confirmed by the latter's 
references to his own life, which are found 
scattered in the present work. See foil. 80 h, 
141 5, etc. 

The Tabsirat un-Nazirin is divided into a 
Mukaddimah, a Makrdah which forms the 
main bulk of the volume, and a Khatimah. 

Contents: — Mukaddimah. Biographies of 
seven holy Sayyids who lived in Balgram an-

The author, some account of whose life 
has been given, p. 946 a, had already 
written, as stated in the preface, several 
historical works, when he was induced to 
compose the present record at the request 
of Mr. Abraham Welland, whose acquaintance 
he had made on his arrival at JauniDur (com- 
pare p. 311 a). 

The work is stated to consist of five chap- 
ters (Bab), as follows : — I. Rajah Mansaram 
and his relatives ; affairs of Bareli, fol. 5 a. 
H. Eajah Balwand Singh, A.H. 1162—1184, 
fol. SO h. III. Rajah Chait Singh, A.H. 
1185—1195, fol. 84 a. IV. Rajah Mahipat 
Nara'in. V. Rajah Udit Nara'in Singh. 

Of these chapters, however, the first three 
only are found in the present and the follow- 
ing copy. In the conclusion the author states 
his intention of devoting another volume to 
a record of the succeeding period, beginning 
with A.H. 1196, when the territory was 
annexed by the Company, and the title of 
Rajah conferred upon Mahipat Nara'in. 

In the second and third chapters the 
events are recorded year by year, and, 
especially in the third, with great minute- 



ness. The author's frequent references to 
himself show that he had been a not unim- 
portant actor in some of the transactions 
which he chronicles.

The above title is a chronogram for the 
death of Siraj ud-Daulah, A.H. 1170, and the 
entire work is made up of short sentences, 
so contrived that the numerical powers of 
the letters in each amount in the aggregate 
to the same number, viz. 1170. 

The author, who does not give his name, 
appears to have written shortly after the 
event which he thus commemorates. In his 
conclusion he represents the tragic end of 
Siraj ud-Daulah as an atonement for the 
death of 'Ala ud-Daulah (Sarfaraz Khan), 
who had been slain in battle by Siraj ud- 
Daulah's grandfather.

This work, written by desire of the author's 
patron, Mr. George Udny, was commenced 



A.H. 1200, A.D. 1786, and finished in the 
space of two years. It comprises an intro- 
duction on the geography and early Eajahs 
of Bengal, and four books (Rauzah) treating 
of the kings and governors who had held 
sway in that country during four successive 
periods, namely those of the Sultans of Dehli, 
the kings of Bengal, the Timurides, and the 
English rule. 

Charles Stewart, who quotes this work 
among his authorities for the " History of 
Bengal," says that the author, Ghoolam 
Hussain Seleemy, Munshi to Mr. George 
Udny, had resided for many years at Mauldah, 
in the vicinity of the ruins of Gour, and had 
taken considerable pains to ascertain the 
dates of the inscriptions found there. Stewart 
adds that he was indebted to Ghulam Husain's 
history for the general outline of his own. 

The extracts comprise the preface, a part 
of the introduction, the rubrics of the first 
three Rauzahs, and the text of the fourth. 

This last section consists of a brief account 
of the Portuguese and French settlements 
in India, and of the English conquests in 
Bengal and the Deccan. 

It is stated on the fly-leaf that the MS. 
of the whole work had 180 pages of 21 lines.

History of the dynasty of Gujrat, from its 
origin to the reign of Mahmud Shiili (A.H. 

Beg. (J-?, iiA«J;s- (^Ob J i_2iljjO. 

The author, who appears to have lived at 
the Court of Mahmud Shah, does not disclose 
his name, nor does he give any information 

regarding himself, beyond the fact inci- 
dentally recorded, fol. 82 a, that be was born 
on the 18th of Rajab of the year in which 
his father followed Sultan 'Ala ud-Din Bah- 
manl in an expedition against the fortress of 
Mudkal {i.e. A.H. 817, according to Eirish- 
tah, Brigg's translation, vol. ii. p. 432). 

The work is a chronicle recording year by 
year the events of Gujrat, and, more briefly, 
those of the neighbouring kingdoms of 
Dehli, the Deccan, Malvah, Bengal, and 
Jaunpiir, with occasional references to Tiraur 
and his successors. It begins with A.H. 793, 
the year in which the founder of the dynasty, 
Zafar Kliiin, afterwards Muzaffar Shah, was 
sent by Muhammad Shah B. Eiruz Shah to 
Gujrat to wage war with the idolaters who 
had overrun the country. 

The history embraces the following reigns : 
Muzafi"ar Shah, fol. 3 h. Nasir ud-Din Mu- 
hammad Shah B. Muzaffar Shah, placed for 
a short time on the throne, A.H. 806, fol. 
47 h. Ghiyas ud-Din Muhammad Shah B. 
Ahmad Shah, who succeeded A.H. 813, fol. 
81 h. Kutb ud-Din B. Muhammad Shah, 
A.H. 855, fol. 88 a. Da'ud Khan B. Ahmad 
Shah, A.H. 863, fol. 109 h. Mahmud Shah, 
A.H. 863, fol. 110 a. 

The latter part of the volume, foil. 110 — 
144, beginning with a long and tedious 
panegyric on the reigning sovereign, contains 
a circumstantial and dramatic account of 
the wonderful escape of that youthful prince, 
then fourteen years of age, from the con- 
spiracy which four months after his accession 
tlireatened to cut short his career. (See 
Brigg's Eirishtah, vol. iv. pp. 46 — 49, Bird's 
Gujrat, p. 203). The narrative concludes 
abruptly with the statement that the rebel 
forces were routed and driven in headlong 

There can be no doubt, however, that the 
history of Malimud's reign was originally 
brought down to a later period; for the 
author refers incidentally, fol. 132 a, to 



his account of a drought which occurred 
A.H. 889.

the dates of the several years, have not been 

The above mentioned reference to the Bah- 
mani Court, in connexion with the author's 
birth, suggests as probable the identity of 
the present work with a history of Gujrat 
entitled Maagir i Mahmudshahi, also called 
Tarikh i Mahniridshalii, the author of which, 
Mulla 'Abd ul-Karim Hamadani, had long 
been attached to Khwajah Mulimud Gavan, 
the celebrated minister of the Balimanis (see

There is no preface, and, although in the 
course of the narrative the author frequently 
speaks of himself, his name occurs only 
once, in a versified chronogram, fol. 101 b. 
He appears to have been a Sayyid in great 
repute of sanctity, and he played, according 
to his own account, fuUy borne out by other 
historians, no inconsiderable part in the 
events of which he gives a circumstantial 
narrative. It was by his advice that I'timad 
Khan, who wielded a disputed sway in Guj- 
rat, wrote to Akbar to urge him to take 

possession of that country, and he was the 
first to meet the emperor in his advance, 
and tender to him the submission of I'timad 
Khan, for whose loyalty ho was called upon 
to stand surety. (See foil. 56 seqq. ; compare 
Akbar Namah, 17th year, and Bird's History 
of Gujrat, pp. 307 — 9) . He then accompanied 
the emperor in his progress through Gujrat, 
and was employed by him to watch, and 
report upon, the proceedings of Mirza 'Aziz, 
the first governor of the conquered province 
(foil. 80—97). 

In A.H. 985, having been appointed Mir 
Haj, he proceeded to Mecca, and brought 
back thence a stone bearing the imprint of 
the Prophet's foot, which Akbar received 
with the greatest show of veneration (ac- 
cording to the Akbar Namah, 21th year, 
"with a political display of respect;" com- 
pare Bird, p. 319). The author subsequently 
removed that precious relic to Ahmadabad, 
and erected for it a dome, which was com- 
pleted A.H. 994 (see foil. 101—101). When 
I'timad Khan was appointed Sfibahdar of 
Gujrat in lieu of Shihab ud-Din Ahmad 
Khan, A.H. 992, Shah Abu accom- 
panied the former in the capacity of Amin 
(see foil. 107—9). 

According to the Maagir ul-Umara, Add. 
6568, fol. 457, abridged by Blochmann, Ain 
i Akbari, p. 506, Abu Turab belonged to the 
Salami Sayyids of Shiraz. His grandfather, 
Mir Ghiyag ud-Din, had settled in Ghanpanir, 
in the time of Mahmiid Bigarah, together 
with his son Mir Kamal ud-Din, " who be- 
came the father of Abu Turab." 

This last statement is not borne out by the 
author, who, when mentioning the two sons 
of Mir Ghiyas ud-Din, viz. Shah Kamal ud- 
Dln Path Ullah and Shah Kutb ud-Din 
Shukr Ullah, fol. 17 a, calls the former his 
uncle and the latter his father. In a note 
written on the first page of the MS. the 
author is designated accordingly as son of 
Shah Kutb ud-Din Shukr Ullah. 



Abu Turab died A.H. 1005, or, according 
to the Mirat i Ahmadi, Add. 6580, fol. 392, 
A.H. 1003, and was buried in Ahmadabad. 

The tirst part of the work deals with the 
history of Bahadur Shah, of his wars with 
Humayiin, and of his successors, while the 
latter half is entirely taken up with the 
account of the conquest of Gujrut by Akbar, 
and of succeeding events. It concludes with 
the arrival of I'timad Khan and the author 
before Ahmadtdjad, which they find in the 
power of tlie rebels, A.H. 992, and their 
retreat to Patau, at which point the narra- 
tive breaks off. The date of composition 
must be a few years later ; for in a passage 
already mentioned there is a reference to 
A.H. 994.

This work, which is called in the subscrip- 
tion Tarikh i Nasirshahi, was evidently 
written by a courtier of Nasir Shah. It is a 
pompous and inflated panegyric, containing 
a scanty proportion of facts, and is almost 
entirely destitute of dates. It begins at the 
time when the father of Nasir ud-Din 

entrusted to him, after twenty years' rule, 
the reins of' government, or about A.H. 894. 
Nasir ud-Din's formal assumption of the 
sovereign power on the 27th of Rabi' II,, 
A.H. 906, is told at great length on foU. 29

After dwelling on tlie harshness of Baji 
Rao's rule and his want of regard for his de- 
pendents, in which he sees the main cause of 
his fall, the author states the circumstances 
which had led him to write the present work. 
He was living in peace in Haidarabad, under 
the beneficent rule of Sikandar Jali, when 
adverse fortune carried him away to Poona. 
There he entered the service of Baji Kao, in 
which he remained four years, and took an 
active share in the war, of which he drew up 
this account before returning to his native 

The history begins on fol. 10 with the 
assassination of (Gangadhar) Shastri by Tri- 
mukh-Ji, tlie primary cause of the war (14th 
July, 1815; see Duff, Mahrattas, vol. iii. 
p. 375). It concludes with a spirited ac- 
count of the surprise of Baji Rao's army by 
General Smith, on the 13th of Rabi' II., A.H. 
1233 (19th February, 1818; see Duff, 
p. 443), and of the desperate charge of the 
Marattah General, Babu Goklah. The author 
states at the end that Baji Eao, hotly pur- 


sued, was then setting out from Chandah, 
ISTagpore, with the intention of reaching

The author calls himself a servant of the 
Vazir Khwiljah Kivam ud-Din Nizam ul- 
Mulk ul-Khwaf ], for whom the present work 
was written, and to whose praises its con- 
cluding portion is devoted. That statesman, 
who had accompanied Sultan Abu Sa'id, as 
stated fol. 215 a, in an expedition to Irak 
and Azarbu'ijan, A.H. 871, and was then ap- 
pointed Governor of Kum and Rai, had been 
subsequently, A.H. 875, raised to the office 
of Vazir, by Abul Ghazi Sultan Husain. 

Kivam ud-Din was, according to Habib 
us-Siyar, vol. iii., Juz 3, pp. 231, 245, a son 
of Maulana Shihab ud-Din Isma'il, Kazi of a 
district of Khwaf, and was deposed for 
peculation A.H. 892. 

Among the authorities quoted in the 
preface, fol. 7 a, is found a work entitled 
Makamat i Khwajah Abu Nasr Mushkani 
by Abul-Fazl Baihaki (see p. 159 b). 

This copy, which is extremely incorrect, 




appears to hare been transcribed from a de- 
fective MS., in wliicli many leaves had been 
transposed, so tliat the contents are imperfect 
and confused. 

The work is divided, according to the pre- 
face, into two boolis (Makiimah), respectively 
subdivided into twelve and four chapters 
(Bab), as follows : — Makalah I. Vazirs of the 
following dynasties ; 1. Early kings of Persia 
and Greece, fol. 9 a. 2. The first Khalifs 
(Rashidin) and the Imams, fol. 16 a. 3. Banl 
Umayyali, fol. 19 a. 4. Bani 'Abbas, fol. 
51 a. 5. Al i Saman, fol. 59 h. 6. Ghaz-

8. Al i Saljiik. 9. Khwarazmshahis, fol. 
180 a. 10. Chingizkhan. 11. Al i Muzaffar. 
12. Timiir and his children. 

Makalah II. Notice on the " present " Va- 
zir (Kivam ud-Din), in four chapters, treating 
of his virtues and pre-eminence, of his early 
life, of his official career, and of the favours 
bestowed upon him by his sovereign.

compilation of the following works : Ansab 
Sam'ani (see the Arabic Catalogue, p. 167 a),

As the latest of the above works, the Ra-

pilation cannot have been written before the 
tenth century of the Ilijrah. The table con-

"Abd us-Samad, who traced his origin to 



the celebrated saint of Bukhara, Khwajah 
Ahrar, had proceeded to India and entered 
the imperial service under Aurangzib. He 
took part in the conflict of the sons of Baha- 
dur Shah, and was rewarded for his services 
with the title of Dillr Jang and the govern- 
ment of Lahore. After having completely 
crushed the Sikhs and made their Guru, 
Bandah, prisoner, A.H. 1127, he obtained a 
command of 7000 men, with the title of 
Saif ud-Daulah. He was equally successful 
in suppressing the revolts of 'Isa Khan, A.H. 
1129, and of Husain Khan of Kasur, A.H. 
1131. In the eighth year of Muhammad 
Shah he was transferred to Multan, and died 
A.H. 1150. See Maagir ul-Umara, fol. 320. 

The author wrote this life of his master in 
the most flowery style, and, as he states in 
the preface, in imitation of the celebrated 
Tughra's history of the conquest of Balkh 
by Murad Bakhsh, entitled Mir'at i Inflrah. 
The date of composition, A.H. 1135, is con-

an account of "Abd us-Samad's expedition to 
Kashmir, which resulted in the complete 
pacification of the country, and of his sub- 
sequent return to Lahore.

The writer is the well-known poet com- 
monly called Mir Hasan Dihlavi, one of the 
favourite disciples of Nizam ud-Din (see 
p. 618 a). The collection consists of two 
distinct pai-ts. Tlic first comprises discourses 
uttered in a number of successive sittings 
from the third of Sha'ban A.H. 707 to the 
fifth of Jumada II., A.H. 719 ; it was com- 
pleted, as stated at the end, on the second of 
Sliavval in the last named year. The second, 
foil. Ill — 132, extends over three years, 
namely from the twenty-first of Sba'biln, 
A.H. 719, to the nineteenth of Sha'ban, A.H. 
722, and was completed on the next-follow- 
ing day. 


The Fava'id ul-Eu'ad is mentioned by "Abd

which enjoyed the highest authority with the 
disciples of Nizam ud-Din. See also Haj. 
Khal., vol. iv. p. 478, where the author is 
called Jalal ud-Din Dihlavi. 

The latter part of the volume, foil. 132 —

The author states in the preface that he 
had written the present work, after com- 
pleting the history entitled Mir'at ul-"Alam 
(see p. 125 b), in order to illustrate more 
copiously a subject to which one section only 
of the latter book had been devoted. He adds 
that the date of its comjdetion, A. II. 1090, 
was conveyed by the title. 

The Biyaz ul-Auliya is divided into four 
parts, called Chaman, as follows:— I. The 
early Khalifs (Rashidln), fol. 3 a. II. The 
Imams, fol. 5 a. III. Notices of saints, 
compiled from the Tazkirat iil-Auliya, Kafa- 
hat ul-Uns, and Rashakat ul-Kuds, and alpha- 
betically arranged, fol. 9 a. IV. Lives of 
Indian saints, in the same order, fol. 88 h. 

It has been already noticed, p. 890 b, that 
the editor of the Mir'at Jahan-numa claims 
the authorship of the Riyaz ul-Auliya, as 
well as that of the Mir'at ul-'Alam, for his

The author gives his name in the spiritual 
pedigrees of the two orders to which he 
belonged and to which he gives pre- 
eminence, viz. the Hamadani, founded by 
Sayyid 'Ali Hamadani, (see p. 447 b), and 
the well known Kadiri order (foil. 70 a, 
72 a). He was the great-grandson of a 
Kashmirian saint of great repute, Mir Ham- 
zah ul-Bukhriri, who died A.H. 1026 (fol. 
69 b). We are informed in a marginal note, 
fol. 72 a, that 'Abd ul-Karim died on the

The tables, which were completed, as stated 
by the author, fol. 72 a, in Sha'ban, A.H.

Sayyid Muhammad B. Mubarak Kirmani, 
whose work is frequently quoted by later 
writers, was born in India. His grandfatlier, 
Sayyid Muhammad Kirmani, the iirst of the 
family who came to that country, was a 
disciple of Farid ud-Din Ganj i Shakar and a 
friend of Nizam ud-Dln Auliya. The author, 
who as a youth had received the initiation 
from the latter saint, became subsequently a 
disciple of Na.?ir ud-Din, surnamed Cbiranhi 
Dihli, who died A.H. 757 (p. 41 a). See 
Akhbar ul-Akhyar, fol. 84, Kiyaz ul- Auliya, 
fol. 161, and Ma'asir ul-Kiram, fol. 146. 

In the preface the author states that he 
was fifty years old at the time of composi- 
tion. Firuz Shah, who reigned A.H. 752 — ■ 
790, is frequently spoken of as the reigning 
sovereign. A record of his death, which is

and consist to a great extent of poetical 
quotations. Those, however, which relate 
to the poets of India, especially in the more 
recent times, are richer in biographical 
details and more valuable. The author gives, 
under las Takhallus Najm, foil. 184 — 190, an 
account of his life, with ample specimens of 
his verses, and under Agah, the poetical 
surname of his grandfather, Iktidar ud-Dau-

It has been satisfactorily shown by Dr.

The memoirs of Asad Bog Kazvini, 

Beg. SjjJ. ^J'^^'^j L?^V^ 1*^^ 
Asad Beg was a native of Kazvin and a 
son of Khwajali Murad. His travels brought 
him in early life to Herat, where he acted 
for some time as Davat-dar to the Vazir 
Khwajah Afzal, and, associating with men 
of letters, attained great eminence in prose 
and poetry. Having proceeded thence to 
India, he attached himself to Shaikh Abul- 
Fazl, who showed him great regard, and 
with whom ho stayed seventeen years. 

After his patron had fallen a victim to 
the assassin Barsiugh Dev, A.H. 1011, he 
passed into the service of Akbar, by whom 
he was sent upon a mission to Ibrahim 
'Adil Shah of Bijapur. According to the 
Mir'at i Jalian Numa, fol. 302, from which 
the above is mostly taken, Asad Beg died 
A.H. 1030, leaving a Divan of 8000 lines 
and some Masnavis. But in a notice ap- 
pended to tlie present copy, in the same 
handwriting as the text, it is stated that, 
after having been kept some time at a dis- 
tance by Jahangir, he was again received 
into favour, obtained at the close of the 
reign the title of Pislirau Khan, and died 
under Shalijahan, A.H. 1041. Asad Beg is 
mentioned as a poet in Riyaz ush-Shu'arS, 
fol. 37, and in Hamishah Bahar, Oude 
Catalogue, p. 118. 

The memoirs begin with a circumstantial 
account of the assassination of Shaikh Abul- 
Fazl. They contain a detailed narrative of 
the author's proceedings from that day down 
to his admission to Jahangir's presence, and 
conclude with the deatli of Akbar and 
the installation of his successor upon the

"The pilgrim's companion," an account 
of a journey to Mecca and Medina. 

Author ; Safi B. Vali, of Kazvin, ^^ Ju, 

Beg. j^iiJl sjUs ^1! 

The author states that he set out on this 
journey from Dehli on the 12th of Rajab 
A.H. 1087, after obtaining leave from Zib 
un-Nisa, the daugliter of Aurangzib, and after 
completing a Tafsir dedicated to that 
princess. He wrote the present work while 
travelling, and, as he had been, down to his 
return to Dehli, about twelve months on the 
way, he divided it into twelve sections 
called Maslak. 

The contents are, according to the preface, 
as follows: — Mukaddimah. Voyage from 
Surat to Jiddah, fol. 7 a. Tarik I., "consisting 
of four Maslaks and a Tatimmah. Requisites 
of a sea-voyage, fol. 12 b. T^irik II., simi- 
larly divided. 1. Rules and ol)servances of 
the pilgrimage ('Drarah and Hajj), fol. 35 b. 
2. Description of Mecca, of the Ka'bah, and 
of Masjid ul-Haram, fol. 54 a. 3. History 
of Mecca, abridged from the work of Kutb 
ud-Din Haidar Hanafi, fol. 79 a. 4. Ex- 
tracts from the JIufarrihat ul-Anam, or 
description of Mecca, by Sayyid Zain ul- 
'Abidin Kashi, fol. 82 b. Tatimmah, treating 

of the caravans which come from various 
countries and meet in Mecca, fol. 98 a. Tarik 
III., similarly divided: 1. The author's 
journey to Medina, fol. 114 a. 2. Rules to be 
observed on entering Medina and visiting 
its shrines, fol. 117 a. 3. Description of the 
Haram and of the cityof the Prophet, fol. 61 5. 
4. Stages between Mecca and Medina, fol. 
66 b. Tatimmah. What the author saw in 
Jiddah and Mokha; praises to God for de- 
liverance from danger, fol. 74 a. KhPitimah. 
Some occurrences subsequent to the author's 
landing; on the honours due to pilgrims. 

This copy is incorrect, defective, and, in 
some parts, much confused, owing apparently 
to the transposition of leaves in the MS. 
from which it was transcribed. The latter 
was, as stated by Sir H. Elliot on the fly-leaf, 
in the Topkhana library at Lucknow, and 
was embellisliod with drawings of the temples 
of Mecca and Medina, of caravans, etc.

Memoirs of the author and of his times. 
Author : Tahmas Khan, i_yjU^l^ 
Beg. \\^^^} j'^/^J.^^.'.S'Vj^uT J^-J..^jU5 
The author, born of Armenian, Georgian, 
or Kurdish parents, in a village near 
Bayazid in Asia Minor, was carried ofi", as an 
infant, by the Uzbak bands of Nadir Shah. 
Some years later his Uzbak master went to 
India, and enlisted in the army of Mu'in ul- 
Mulk, Governor of Lahore (see p. 278 b), who, 
taking charge of 'Tahmas, had him trained^ 
with some Moghuls of the same age, for 
military service. After the death of Mu'in ul- 
Mulk (which happened A.H. 1107), Tahmas 
continued in the service of the Bcgam, the 
deceased governor's widow, who, after re- 
maining some time in charge of the province 
repaired to the court of Ahmad Sliah Durrani.' 



There the author, who had accompanied her, 
"was well received, and saw much active 
service. Timfir Shah raised him to the rank 
of Khrm, changing his original name of 
Timur to Tahmas Khan. 

A difficulty with the Begam, whose in- 
tended second marriage he endeavoured to 
oppose, having compelled him to seek safety 
in flight, he repaired to Sirhind, where lie 
stayed some time, and, passing on to Delili, 
served successively under Zabitah Khan, and, 
after that Amir's fall, under Zulfakur ud-Dau- 
lali Kajaf Khan, who was his chief at the 
time of writing. He was then living at Dehli 
in great affluence, and had obtained from Shall 
"Alam the titles of Mulikim ud-Daulah Ftikad 
Jang Tahmas Khan. 

The Amir ul-Umara Najaf Kliiin was from 
A.H. 1193 to his death in A.H. 1197 the 
virtual head of the Dehli government. See 
Ma'asir ul-Umara, Add. 6567, fol. 227, Tarikh 
i Muzaffari, Or. 466, fol. 119, and Francklin, 
History of Shah Aulum, p. 97. 

The author says that he wrote these 
memoirs for the benefit of his children, 
and completed them in A.H. 1193, a date 
expressed by the chronogram 'aJc"* 5j.i> 
^jjy . He liad previously written two works 
in the Turkl language, viz. a sketch of his 
life, and a Turk! manual called Ahmad 
Namah . 

The memoirs are written in an extremely 
discursive style ; the author narrates in great 
detail, but without any reference to dates, not 
only his own life and the military transac- 
tions in wliioh he bore an active part, but all

Anecdotical memoirs of the author's time, 
by Ghulam Muhammad Khan, ^s? plki 
Beg. OjojI j U.»i6 U5 J a,=- 

The author states that he had left his 
native town, Sirhind, at the age of twelve 
years, and had wandered in search of learn- 
ing and in quest of a livelihood to the Eastern 
parts of India. At the request of his son Fazl 
Husain, then in his fourteenth year, he 
jotted down in the present work some of the 
notable facts and events which had come 
under his observation, or whichhe had learned 
from trustworthy informants. 

The narratives, whicli are written in a gos- 
siping style andliomely language, occasionally 
relieved by Persian and Hindustani verses, 
relate for the most part to the period extend- 
ing from the invasion of Nadir Shah to the 
latter part of the reign of Shah "Alam. The 
author states, on fol. 17 b, that his main ob- 
ject was to disparage the court of Jaipiir, 
whereupon he proceeds to relate several in- 
stances of the treachery of its Rajahs. The 
last of these was the surrendering of Vazir'Ali 
Khan to the English, in Jumada II., A.H. 
1211." On tliat occasion the author was

Diary of the author's travels in central

Mir "Izzat Ullah, who is described by 
Moorcroft as a native gentleman of talent 
and information, states in the opening lines 
that he undertook the journey here re- 

corded at the request of the last-named tra- 
veller. He started from Dehli on the scventli 
day of Rabi'IL, A.H. 1227, 20 April 1812, left 
Atak on the seventh of Raj ah in the same year, 
and travelled through Kashmir, Tibet, Yar- 
kand, Kashghar, the frontiers of China, Ko- 
kiln, Samarkand, Bukhara, Balkh, KhuUam, 
Bamiyan, and Kd^ul, returning to Peshawar 
at the end of Zulliijjah, A.H. 1228, the 16th of 
December, 1818. He added to his own ob- 
servations those of his comj)anion Hafiz Fa- 
zil, whom he had sent from Atak to Bukhara. 

Mir 'Izzat Ullah subsequently accompanied 
Wm. Moorcroft, as native secretary and 
interpreter, on a journey to the same regions 
from 1819 to 1 824. He quitted the party 
on his return journey to India at Kunduz, 
in December 1824, but died in Kabul in the 
course of the following year. See Moororoft's 
Travels, edited by H. H. Wilson, London,

Beg. J ^jo^)\ j^.Uf) y-» V. 

Tlie author, coiTimonly known as Khwajah 
Mahmud Gavan, has been already mentioned, 
p. 528 a. He states in the preface that his 
grandfather and father had been raised to 
the post of Vazir, and that, although in- 
clined to give up worldly pursuits for a 
religious life, he had been led by circum- 
stances to accept the same employment. He 
adds that his letters, although written in the 
midst of the distracting cares and anxieties of 
office, had been much admired, and that 

he had yielded to the entreaties of his 
friends by collecting those of which rough 
draughts had been preserved. See Hammer, 
Wiener Jahrbiicher, vol. 62, Anzeige Blatt, 
p. 17, Vienna Catalogue, vol. i. p. 261, An- 
quetil, Zendavasta, p. dxxxi., the St. Peters- 
burg Catalogue, p. 416, and Krafft's Cata- 
logue, p. 26. 

Tlie letters are not arranged according to 
any obvious plan. Among the persons to 
whom they were addressed, and whose names 
are found in headings apparently due to the 
author, the most notable are the following : 
'Abdur-Rahman Jami ; three letters, foil. 24 S,

Author : Munslii Malikzadah, i-jjj^ 

Beg. i-i^J^^ ij^j^} c:^~*^ ij,— 

The author gives in his introduction an ac- 
count of some eminent Munshis, fol. 3 b, and 
a sketch of his own life, fol. 6 b. From the 
latter the following facts may be gathered. 
Malikzadah was first in the employ of the 
Kazi Muhammad Munir. After the death of 
Lashkar Khan (A.H. 1081; see Ma'agir ul- 
Umara, fol. 434) he entered the service of 
Prince Muhammad Mu'azzam Shah "Alam, 
whose son, Prince Mu'izz ud-DIn, he accom- 
panied in the campaign to KiibuL Having 
been afterwards appointed Munshi of the Di- 
vani, he served in that capacity in the Dec- 
can under two successive Divans, Eahmat 
Khan and Basharat Khan. On the latter 
being recalled from Aurangabad to the capital, 
the author obtained leave, on account of old 
age (he was then in his seventieth year), to 
remain in the former city, and compiled the 
present work, which he completed A.H. 1095. 

The Nigar Numah is divided into two 
Daftars. Daftar I. comprises the author's 
own compositions classed in four Safl.iahs. 
Daftar II. contains, in five Safhahs, select 
compositions of other Munshis, principally 
those of Shaikh Taliyar tJdiraj, Munshi 
of Rustam Khan (who after the death of 
Bustam Khan, A.H. 1068, became the con- 
fidential adviser of Eajah Jaisingh, see fol. 
5 a), and of Amanat Khrtn, called Mir Mu'in 
ud-Din Ahmad, who was Divan of the Klial- 
sah in the reign of Aurangzib (and resigned 



in the 18th year, A.H. 1085 ; see Tazkirat ul- 
Umara, fol. 13). 

The above division, however, is not con- 
sistently carried out in the present copy, 
which omits the headings of some of the sec- 
tions, and is imperfect at the end.

The author claims descent from Asaf Khan 
Ja'far, an Amir of the reign of Akbar. 
Mirzii Badi' uz-Zaman Kifayat Khan, wliom 
he calls his grandfather, fol. 9 5, died, as 
stated in the Tazkirat ul-Umara, fol. 83, in 
the 13th year of Aurangzib's reign. Mirza 
Izad Balvhsh is mentioned in the Riyaz ush- 
Shu'ara, fol. 196, as a writer of some merit 
who lived in Akharabad, and died in the time 
of 'Alamgir, while, according to the Hami- 
shah Bahar, Oude Catalogue, p. 123, the 
date of his death was A.H. 1119. 

The letters, the dates of which range from 
A.H. 1081 to 1103, are addressed to 'Alam- 
gir, Prince Muhammad "AzTm, Imam 'Abd

Chhabilah Ram, a Nagar Brahman of Guj- 
rat, was one of the early supporters of Par- 
rukhsiyar, who rewarded his services with 
the title of Rajah and the ofBcc of Divan i 
Khalisah. He was afterwards appointed 
governor of Ilahabad, where he died A.H. 
1131. Girdhar, son of his brother Dayaram, 
succeeded to the title and was made Subah- 
darofOude. In A.H. 1137 he was transferred 
to the government of Malwah, where he fell 
in an encounter with Holkar's troops A.H. 
1139. See Khfifi Khan, vol. ii. p. 812, Ma'a- 
sir ul-Umara, Add. 6567, fol. 278, and Grant 
Dufi's History of the Marattas, vol. i. pp. 
488, 613. We learn from the present work 

that Rajah Chimna, son of Chhabilah Ram, in 
whose life-time it was written, was appointed, 
in lieu of his deceased cousin Girdhar, Su- 
bahdar of Malwah. 

The compiler's preface, which is imperfect 
at the beginning and docs not disclose his 
name, is written in the stilted style usual to 
Munshis. Tlie work is divided into three

The letters, which arc without headings, 
dates, or signatures, have evidently a special 
connexion with the Jat chief Bajah Javahir 
Singh, who succeeded his father Suraj Mai 
A.H. 1178, and died A.H. 1182. Some are 
written in his name to the emperor, others 
are addressed to him, while in many, evi- 
dently written by his dependants, he is 
spoken of as tlie reigning prince, and his 
feats are celebrated in prose and verso. 

Most of the letters contain circumstantial 
intelligence of contemporary transactions, 
political and military, in various parts of 
Hindustan and of the Deccan. They refer 
principally to the proceedings of the fol-

earlier writers, who condensed much matter 
in few words. He states that he liad written 
the present work at the request of a holy 


personage to whom lie was devotedly at- 
tached, Sayyid Muhammad Ghaus Gujrati.

The translator, who mentions incidentally, 
fol. 198 b, Shahjahan as the reigning sove-

this version by order of his patron Musavi 

That Amir, whose original name was Mir 
"All Asghar, was appointed in the 17th 
year of Jahangir's reign to the office of Sadr 
i Kull, and was deposed in the 16th year 
of Shfihjahrm (A.H. 1052—3). He died 
A.H. 1054. See Tazkirat ul-Umara, fol. 96, 
Ma'agir ul-Umara, fol. 489, and Padishah 
Namah, vol. ii. p. 372. The present trans- 
lation must have been written between the 
accession of Shahjahan, A.H. 1037, and 
A.H. 1054. The extracts, which range over

The author, who was born in Balgram 
A.H. 1132, came of a family which traced 
its origin to "Abd ur-Rahman 'Ugmani of Me- 
dina, and which had given, as he asserts, 
judges to the city of Sirinagar (afterwards 
Balgram) from the time of Sultan Mahmud 
Ghaznavi downwards. His father Allah Yar, 
who served with the rank of Bakhshi under 
Mubariz ul-Mulk Sarbuland Khfin, Subah- 
dar of Gujrat, had fallen in a battle fought 
by that Amir with the Rajput Abhai Singh, 
A.n. 1142, whereupon Mubariz ul-Mulk sent 
for the author, then a boy of ten years, from 
Balgram to Agrah, and conferred upon him 
the rank and title of his deceased father. 
See foil. 120 and 230. 

In his account of DehU, foil. 158-9, the 



author gives a circumstantial account of 
three successive sojourns he had made in tlie 
capital, first, at the age of twelve years, in 
the train of Muhariz ul-Mulk Sarbuland 
Khan, through whose influence he was pro- 
moted to a command of 2500 men, secondly, 
at the age of twenty, after the invasion of 
Nadir Shah, when he noticed a sad falling off 
in the splendour of the imperial court, and, 
thirdly, in the suite of 'AIT Kuli Khan, 
during the reign of 'Alamgir II., when he 
perceived everywhere traces of the havoc 
made by the ruthless bands of Ahmad Shall 

From the sketch of his life given by the 
author in the preface we learn that, from 
A.H. 1142 to 1187, be had successively 
served under the following Amirs : Mubariz 
ul-Mulk, Sayyid Sa'adat Khan and his son- 
in-law Safdar Jang, Subahdars of Oude, Mu- 
hammad Kasim Khan, Niizim of Eengal, 'Ali 
Kuli Khan Daghistani (author of the Kiyaz 
ush-Shu ara, see p. 371 a); a-Hf^ -^bmad Khan 
Bangash, Ra'is of Parrulihabad (see p. 900 a). 

After some years spent in retirement he 
was introduced in Jumada I., A.H. 1190, 
by his friend Kajab 'Ali Nafi, of Barah, 
to Captain Jonathan Scott, who appointed 
him one of his Munshis and induced him to 
compile the present work. The rough draft 
was submitted for inspection to Capt. Scott, 
Col. Poller, and Maulavi Darvish 'All, in 
JaunpHr. The dates of several passages in 
which tlio current year is recorded lange 
from A.H. 1192 to 1196. 

The Hadikat ul-Akalim follows the general 
arrangement of the Haft Ilvlim of Amin Eazi 
(see p. 335 h), and borrows freely from its 
pages But it is much richer in geograpliical 
information; the sections relating to India 
are entirely new and original, and contain full 
historical accounts relating to the latest 
period, especially with regard to the trans- 
actions iu Bengal, Oude, and Bihar, in some 
of which the author had been personally 


mixed up. The Subh i Sadilv and the Mun- 
takhab ut-Tavarikh are frequently quoted.

Tliis last section contains an account of 
the divisions of the globe according to Pto- 
lemy, and additional notices relating to 
regions situate outside the seven climates, 
and to places included in the latter, but 
omitted in the body of the work. 

The second climate comprises extensive 
historical notices on the Deccan, Gujrat, and 
Bengal. In the third, the author gives under 
Dehli, foil. 161—219, a sketch of the history 
of Hindostan from the earliest times to A. II. 
1195, and further on, foil. 230—252, a 
detailed account of his native city, Bal- 
grfaii, and of its celebrated men. Other 
biographical notices are grouped in a distinct 
chapter at the end of eacli climate.

tables of contents are appended, foil. 502 — 

The Hadikat ul-Akalim has been litho- 
graphed in Luoknow, 1881. It is one of the 
authorities quoted by W. Francklin in his 
History of Shah Aulum; see p. 198. An

The author, who calls himself in the con- 
cluding lines Karim Khan Jhajhari, states, 
fol. V a, that he had been sent by the Ad- 
miralty to England in order to make himself 
acquainted with the latest astronomical ap- 

An account of that journey, A.D. 1839— 
1841, was written by himself in Hindustani 
under the title of Siyahat Namah. See Gar- 
cin de Tassy, Revue de I'Orient, 1865. 

The circumstance which led to the compi- 
lation of the present work is thus stated in 
the preface. On the 13th of Zulka'dah, A.H. 
1261, the ninth year of the reign of Abul- 
MuzalTar Siraj ud-Din Muhammad Bahadur 
Shah, the author visited the tomb of the 
famous saint Kutb ud-Din Bakhtiyar Kaki 
(see p. 432 b), and had on that occasion an 
interview with the Governor- General Lord 
Henry Hardinge, who desired him to write 
an account of the ancient buildings and 
monuments which had attracted His Lord- 
ship's attention. In order, however, to render 

his composition more worthy of the gover- 
nor's acceptance, he gave it a much wider 
scope. It was completed, as stated at the 
end, on tlie first of Rabi" I., A.H. 1263.

After many years spent in collecting his 
materials, the author brought them into 
alphabetical order in A.H. 1250, and pre- 
sented the work to Richard Carr Glyn, Ses- 
sions Judge of Mirath. He states that he 
had followed the language current in Ba- 
da'un, Bareli, and Shahjahanpur, and had in 
some instances borrowed from the following 
works : Lughat i Hindi by Arzu, Ghara'ib 
ul-Lughat by "Abd ul-Vasi' Hansavi, Tiilif i

in Jahangirnagar (Dacca) he had met, at 
the close of A.H. 1198, with a gracious recep-

the Turki dialect spoken in Iran and Azar- 
baijan, consists of an introduction (Mukad- 
dimah), a nimiber of chapters (Pasl), and a

The author, who has been mentioned 
p. 961 a, is called by his continuator Katil, 
fol. 107, Mir Insha Allah Khan. He was 
born in Murshidabad, where his father was 
well known as physician, and settled about 
A.H. 1200 in Lucknow, where he secured 
the patronage of Prince Sulaiman Shikub. 
He died about A.H. 1230, leaving a Persian 
and an Urdu Divan. See Garcin de Tassy, 
Litterature Hindoui, vol. i. p. 211, and 
Sprenger, Oude Libraries, p. 240. 

The work was undertaken, as stated in the 
preface, by order of the Vazir Sa'adat 'Ali 
Khan (A.H. 1212—1223), and the author 
divided the task of composition with the 
well known poet Mirza Katil (see p. 61 h). 
The former wrote the introduction and gram- 
mar proper ; the latter, the treatises on logic, 
prosody, and rhetoric. 

The Daryai Latafat is divided into an In- 
troduction called Sadaf, comprising five sec- 
tions (Dur-danah), and seven books termed 
Jazirah, as follows : Sadaf I. On the nature 
of the Urdii language, fol. 5 a. II. On the 
various quarters of Shahjahanabad, fol. 10 a. 

III. On some elegant speakers, fol. 22 b. 

IV. Phrases and idioms of Shahjahanabad,

sirl (Raverty's translation, p. 109) and to 
the Guzidah, fol. 210, in Ghaznah imder 
Bahram Shah (A.II. 512—547), and many 
of the poems found in the present MS. are 
addressed to that sovereign and commemorate 
his victories. The poet is describedby Muham- 
mad 'Aufi (quoted in the Riyaz ush-Shu'ara, 
fol. 117) as a holy personage and eloquent 
preacher. On one occasion, it is said, seventy 
thousand hearers crowded round his pulpit. 
Finding that the Sultan was growing jealous 
of his influence, the Sayyid thought it best 
to quit the residence, and proceeded to the 
holy cities. On his return journey he was 
received in Baghdad as an honoured guest 
by the Saljuk ruler, Mas ud B. Muhammad 
(A.H. 529 — 547), who gave him a convoy to 
Khorasan. He died, however, shortly after 
reaching Juvain.

evidently due to the author is generally de- 
signated by his posthumous title C-.i=- cij^a-

According to a notice which occupies foil, 




2 h — 4s a, Mir Yahya, who traced his origin 
to Shiraz, but lived with his father in Kil- 
shiin, went to India in the reign of Shah- 
jahan, and became a panegyrist of the em- 
peror and of the heir apparent Dara Shikuh. 
Shahjahan appointed him to tlie office of 
librarian and entrusted to him the task of 
writing a poetical record of his reign. But 
after a time the poet fell out of favour, and 
the poem remained a fragment. 

Mir Yahya died, according to Varig, Padi- 
shah Namah, Add. 6556, fol. 530, on the 
15th of Muharram, A.H. 106i. His miscel- 
laneous poems were collected after his death 
into a Divan by his friend Muhammad Tahir 
'Inayat Khan Ashna (see p. 261 6), who 
states in an autograph note appended to 
this volume, that he completed that task 
on the seventh of liajab, A. H. 1065. 
The same note contains a versified chro- 
nogram on Mir Yahya's death, in whioli 
the words j^ly.i j give the date 

1063 ; while another chronogram, which, 
according to Sarkhwush (Or. 470, fol. 112), 
was engraved on his tomb-stone ^^f^ 

i/, conveys the date 1064. 
Compare tlie Oude Catalogue, pp. 115, 151, 
Padishah Kamah, Bibl. Indica, vol. ii. p. 758, 
and Haft Asman, p. 156. 

This fragment consists of panegyrics on 
Shahjahan, and florid descriptions of some 
buildings erected by him. At the end are 
appended some versified chronograms by the 
author, with dates ranging from A.H. 1054 
to 1060.

The real name of the author, who desig-

ment, Mir Muhammad Riza Zul-Paknr, and 
he came of a family of Sayyids settled in Sa- 
fidun ^^yii^ cu'ii'."> (Thornton's Suffeedun, 
a small town in Sirhind). 

Towards the close of this poem Riza states 
that he was then holding a command of 500 
men, and that he had served under Sharaf 
ud-Daulah in the campaign of Ajmir (A.H. 
1135), an account of which concludes tlic 
work. He trusts to his poem to recommend 
him to the emperor's liberality, and thus re- 
lieve his pressing wants.

A poem endorsed 

Beg. i_ril)'' «^i/.WjU» 

The author, who calls himself Naval Jy, 
was, as it appears from the prologue, a son 
of Hira La'I, and a native of llahabad. Hav- 
ing repaired after his father's death to Shams- 
abad, Oude, he was introduced by his friend 
Ram Parshad to Yakut Khan, Vazir of Mu- 
hammad Khan Bangash, by whom he was 
sent in the capacity of Vakil to Agra. He 
subsequently passed into the service of Ah- 
mad Khiin Bangash, by whose desire he wrote 
the present work in A.H. 1170. 

It consists of two Babs, which may be de- 
scribed as distinct works. The first, foil. 8 — 
65, is a poetical account of the career of the 
Rohilla chief Ahmad Khan Bangash, and of 
his protracted struggle with the Vazir Abul- 
Mansur Khan Safdar Jang, from the death 
of his father Muhammad Khan (A.H. 1156) 
to his peace with the Vazir and his installa- 
tion on the Masnad of Earrukhabfid (A.H. 
1164). See above, p. 960 a. 

Bab II,, foil. 66 — 228, contains a collection 
of Indian tales, in the same metre.

The stories, which had been collected from 
Hindi sources, as stated in the prologue, by a 
Brahman called Gauridat, were turned into 
Persian verse by order of Ahmad Khan. 
The iirst three tales are the following : The 
merchant of Rum, the cowherd's son, and 
the king of India, ful. 68. King Shrdi Nand, 
who was thrown into a well by his Vazir

Beg. jojUi- ^Vy> 

The author lived in India under J ahangir. 
He relates incidentally, fol. 35 a, that he 
was present in Agra, A.H. 1029, at an ele- 
phant light which that emperor witnessed 
from the window of his palace. In a preface 
dated A.H. 1041 he dedicates his work, " not, 
according to the prevailing custom, to an 
earthly patron, but to his Divine Master," 
and he states further on, fol. 11 b, tliat his 
chief object was to commemorate the mira- 
cles of the Prophet and the glories of the 
Imams. He draws, however, most of his 
matter from historical works which have no 
special religious character. 

The work consists, according to the preface, 
of five volumes (Sahifah). Each of these 
is divided into twelve Babs, and each Bab 
comprises twelve narratives (Hikayat), which 
in the first Sahifah are termed Majlis. 

The present volume contains only the first 
of the five Sahifalis, the only portion of the 
work which was completed when the pre- 
face was written. But a table of contents 
prefixed to it, in the same handwriting as 
the text, foil. 3 — 8, includes a full enumera- 
tion of the twelve Babs of the second Sahi- 
fah and of their sub-divisions.

The author was born, as he states at the 
end, in Ahmadabad, Gujrfit, where his father 
Gulab Eiii held the office of Mutasaddi,and he 
attained great proficiency in Arabic, Persian, 
Sanskrit, Prakrit, and Bhakha. He was fifty- 
seven years of age when he wrote the pre- 
sent compilation, which he had commenced 
in Jainagav {i. e. Jaipiir), by order of Malia- 
rajah Madhii Singh," and completed after the 
Rajah's death (A.H. 1181 ; see fol. 52 h) for 
his own son Sanpat Rai. 

We iearn from other passages, foil. 46 a, 
52 a, that the author had spent eight years 
in the service of Maharajah Jagat Singh 
of Udaipur'', for whom he translated the Di- 
viin of Hafiz into Hindi, and that he was 
staying in Dehli when the invasion of Ahmad 
Khan Abdrdi (A.H. 1173) compelled him to 
fly to Jaipiir and to seek employment at the 
Rajah's court. 

The first part of tlie work contains anec- 
dotes relating to the Timuride emperoi-s and

The writers most frequently quoted are 
those who lived in India, from the authors of

Khusravi (p. 527 a) to the fine-writers of the 
twelfth century of the Hijrah, as Izadbakhsh 
Rasa (see p. 985), Mirza Bidil (p. 706 b), and 
the latter's pupil Mukhlia, who died A.H. 
1164 (p. 997 a). The compiler gives also fre- 
quently specimens of his own composition ; 
but his name does not appear.

of India from the time of Akbar to A.H. 

Beg. tJjU Jl^l tyb.b^'i &SoUji, 

It appears from the preface that the 
author wrote this work as a supplement 
to the history of 'Abd ul-Hakk Dihlavi, 
which he calls Zikr ul-Muluk (see p. 223 b). 
He begins therefore, fol. 4 b, with a short 
account of the "Adilkhanis, Kutbulmulkis, 

Baridis, and FarukiSj who had been omitted 
in the latter work. The history of the 
Timurides, which begins on fol. 8 b with 
Akbar, is extremely brief for the early 
reigns, but becomes fuller for those of Mu- 
hammad Shah, fol. 17 a, Ahmad Shah, 
fol. 25 b, 'AlamgTr II., fol. 32 6, and Shah 
"Alam, fol. 37 b. It is brought down to the 
time of writing, A.H. 1194, when Zul-Fakar 
ud-Daulah Najaf Khan was absolute master 
of Dehli and of the Jat territories. 

The author, who does not give his name, but 
appears to have been a zealous Muslim, lived 
in the district of Sanbhal and Badaun, Rohil- 
kand (see fol. 21 b), and devotes especial 
attention to the record of the Rohilla chief- 
tains. He bestows much praise on Hafiz 
Rahmat Khan, and extols greatly the en- 
lightened and pious rule of the reigning 
Rohilla chief Faiz Ullah Khan, whose state 
he describes as the best governed in India.

The Ra'is's of Muradabad, afterwards of 
Rampiir, whose succession is here chronicled, 
are the following: 'All Muhammad Khan, 
who rose in the early part of Muhammad 
Shah's reign, became master of Muradabad 
A.H. 1161, and died A.H. 1162, fol. 55 
His infant son Sa'd Ullah Khan, who died 
A.H. 1176, and under whom Hafiz Rahmat 
Khan and DQndi Khiin wielded the supreme 
power, fol. 60 a. Faiz Ullah Khan, son of "Ali 
Muhammad Khan, who reigned in Rampur 
from A.H. 1188 to his death in A.H. 1208, 
fol. 75 a. Muhammad "All Khan, son of the 
preceding, slain by his brother Ghulam Mu- 
hammad Khan, fol. 1Q b. Ahmad 'Ali Khan, 
son of Muhammad 'All Khan, whose cousin 
Nasr Ullah Khan B. "xibd Ullah Khan, was 
the virtual head of the state, fol, 78 a. 




The author enters very fully into the wars 
and political transactions of the period, with 
which the history of the Rohillas is closely 
interwoven. The detailed narrative is brought 
down to A.H. 1219 ; but it is stated at the 
end that in the "present year, A.H. 1249," 
Ahmad "Ali Khiin was still living as Navvab 
of Eampur. 

He died in 1839. See the history of the 
"Euhola Afghans" in the Calcutta Eeview, 
vol. 61, pp. 201—225. 

The verbal agreement noticeable between 
several passages of the present and the pre- 
ceding work makes it appear very probable 
that both are due to the same writer.

The writer is noticed in the next-followino- 


work, where it is stated, fol. 100 b, that 
Muhammad Sadik Khan, author of the Pa- 
dishah Namah, who held the oflice of Vaka'i"- 
navis in Agrah, was deposed by Aurangzib, 
and summoned to the royal presence in 
Jumada II., A.H. 1068. 



The work comes to an abrupt termination 
in the first line of fol. 96 a, at a passage 
relating to Aurangzib's departure for Bur- 
hanpur on the 12th of Jumada I., A.H. 1068, 
and corresponding to fol. 196 h of the pre- 
viously described copy, Or. 174. 

The sequel, which in appearance forms a 
continuous text with the above, is in reality 
a distinct work, as follows : 

II. Foil. 96—208. History of the reign 
of Aurangzib, witliout author's name. 

It begins abruptly at a point of time 
somewhat earlier than that at which the 
preceding work breaks off, namely at the 
beginning of A.H. 1068, when Dilra Shikuh 
was taking possession of the Jagir of Aurang- 
zib, and Muradbakhsh assumed the attributes 
of sovereignty (see KliafI Khan, vol. ii. 
pp. 7 — 9). It concludes with the death of 

The verbal agreement of many portions of 
this history with the Muntakhab ul-Lubab 
(p. 232 fi) seems to point to Khafi Khan as 
the author. This presumption is confirmed 
by a passage, fol. 178 h, in which it is inci- 
dentally stated that "the writer" had been 
for a long time attached as Vaka'i'-navis to 
Muhammad Murad Khanahzad Kh:in, a 
statement which is made by Khafi Khan, 
vol. ii. p. 375, with regard to himself. There 
are however so considerable discrepancies 
between the two texts, that they might often 
be taken for different works. As the history 
now under notice was written in the reign 
of Shah 'Alam (Bahadur Shah), who is spoken 
of, fol. 162 J, as the reigning sovereign, it 
must be by about twenty years anterior 
to the Muntakhab ul-Lubab, and it seems 
highly probable that it represents an 
early recension of the work of Khafi Khan, 
and that the omissijns and other varia- 
tions noticeable in it indicate additions and 
changes subsequently introduced by the

Having acquired an early taste for the 
society of the learned and the perusal of the 
records of the past, the author had long con- 
templated, as he states in the preface, com- 
piling tlie lives of saints, philosophers, and 
poets, from the time of the early Khalifs to 
the reign of Shahjahan; but he was com- 
pelled by want of leisure to confine himself 
to those who had lived under the illustrious 
house of Timiir. 

The date of composition is not mentioned 
in the preface ; but A.H. 1046 is spoken of, 
fol. 308 6, as the current year. It may be 
gathered from some incidental references of 
the author to himself that he was born about 
A.H. 1000, and spent his life in Dehli, where 
he met MuUa Kami of Sahzavar, who died 
A.H. 1016, and Shaikh Husain Kamangar, 
who died A.H. 1018 (see foil. 304 a, 282 a). 
He studied under Shaikh Fa'iz, who died 
A.H. 1022, and became a favorite disciple of 
Shaikh 'Abd uhHakk of Dehli (see p. 14 a), 
from whom he daily received affectionate 
notes during an illness which befell him in 
that city (see foil. 293 b, 309 a). 

Among the poets of the reign of Jahangir, 
fol. 304 b, the author mentions his brother 
Mulla Muhammad Yiisuf Kashmiri Hama- 
dani, an eminent poet and Insha-writer, also 
distinguished as a soldier, who died A.H. 

Professor Dowson, who notices the present 
work in Elliot's History of India, vol. vii. 



p. 133, ascribes it to Sfidik Khiin, author of 
a history of Shahjahfm (supra, p. 262). This 
last, however, an Amir of the imperial court, 
does not appear to have anything in common, 
save a name of frequent occurrence, with 
the present writer, who was evidently a man 
in humble circumstances, devoted to study 
and to a religious life. 

The Tabakat i Shahjahani is divided into 
ten periods (Tabakat) corresponding to the 
reigns of Timur and his successors. In each 
of these periods the biographical notices are 
arranged in three sections (Babs), comprising 
1st the Say y ids and saints, 2nd the learned 
("TJlama), physicians (Hukama), and men of 
letters (Fuzala), 3rd the poets. 

The Tabakat are as follows : — I. Timur, 
A.H. 770—807, fol. 14 b. ii. Mlran Shah 
and Sliahrukh, A.H. 807—850, fol. 42 b. 
III. Mirza Sultan Muhammad and Ulugh Beg, 
A.H. 850—853, fol. 79 b. iv. Aba Sa'Id, 
A.H. 854—873, fol. 99 a. v. "Umar Shaikh, 
A.H. 873—899, fol. 118 b. vi. Babar, A.H. 
900—937, fol. 141 a. vii. Humayuu, A.H. 
938—963, fol. 165 b. viii. Akbar, A.H. 
964—1013, fol. 189 b. ix. Jahangir, A.H. 
1013—1037, foL 272 a. x. Shahjahan, from 
A.H. 1037 to the date of composition, fol. 
307 a. 

The notices are 871 in number ; a full list 
of names occupies foil. 2 — 7.

Beginning witli a panegyric on the reign- 
ing sovereign Mu'izz ud-Din Abul-fath Mu- 
barak Shah B. Nasir ud-Din Khizr Khan, 
who had restored the blessings of peace to 
the empire, the author states that he wrote 

the present work as a suitable offering to His 
Majesty. He adds that he had compiled the 
records of earlier kings from various chroni- 
cles, and had relied for the later period on 
information gathered from trustworthy wit-

The history of the last reign, which began 
on the 19th of Jumada I., A.H. 824, is 
brought down to the month of Slia'ban, A.H. 

A later continuation, foil. 446 b — 462 b, 
contains the remaining portion of the same 
reign to the death of Mubarak Shiih on the 
9th of Bajab, A.H. 837, and the reign of his 
successor Muliammad Shah B. Earid Shah 
from his accession to the month of Rabi' II., 
A.H. 838, where the narrative comes to an 
abrupt termination.

view of the elegant writers and 'Ulama who 
flourished in India from the reign of Shams

of India. They begin with the years 68 and

The account of the version given in a short 
preamble is that Sultan Ghiya§ ud-Din vad- 
Dunya Muhammad Shah B. Mahmud Shah 
Kliilji had on the 21st of Muharram A.H. 
783 issued his command to the linguists and 
skilled writers of his Court to translate the 
Salotar y^iUj from the barbarous Indian 
tongue into elegant Persian. 

As Ghiyas ud-Din B. Mahmud Shah Khilji, 
who is apparently meant, reigned, according 
to Nizam ud-Din, from ZulkaMah A.H. 873 
to 906, the above date is probably incorrect, 
and should be read A.H. 883. 

The treatise is divided, according to the 
preface, into eleven Babs, comprising alto- 
gether thirty chapters (Fasl) ; but in the 
body of the work a twelfth Bab is added. 

The work has been shortly described by 
Sir H. Elliot from a copy in the Royal 
Library of Lucknow ; see the History of 
India, vol. v. p. 573.

The author, who had been called by his 
father Birbal from Lucknow to the capital 
s 2 




in order to acquire there the learning 
necessary for a Kayath or scribe, wrote this 
work at the request of his son Kalikiidayal. 
The date of composition, A.H. 1182, is ex- 
pressed in a versified Tarikh at the end by 
the chronogram 

The work is divided into seven chapters 
called Akhtar, as follows : — 1. Origin of the 
Turki language and its dialects. Definition

It is a fiction of the wildest character, 
dealing principally with the adventures of 
two heroes, Shrdi Siihu B. 'Ata Ullah, king 
of Mada'in, and Sultfm Eajab, king of Zang- 
bar. They are made contemporary with 
Muhammad and 'Ali, whom they visit in 
Mecca, and at the same time with Sultan 
Mahmiid B. Subuktigln, who sends them 
forth to the conquest of Thathah and Ajmir. 
Firdiisi is the authority alleged for this 

The above fragment forms part of the 
romance of Srdar Mas'ud Gliazi, the cele- 
brated champion of Islam, who, after num- 
berless encounters with the Hindu idolaters, 
fell in battle near Bahraich, A.H. 424, and 
thus gained the title of Prince of Martyrs 
(Sultan ush-Shuhada). His father Amir 
Sahii B. 'Ata Ullah 'Alavi, who had married 
a sister of Sultan Mahmiid Ghaznavi, is 
stated to have died in Satrakh, A.H. 423.

The author, whose family had been settled 
for some generations in the Subah of Ilaha- 
bad, enjoyed in his youth the society of two 
eminent historians, 'Ali Ibrahim Khan (see 
p. 327 b), and Sayyid Ghulam Husain Khan 
(seep. 280 b), and was staying with John 
Lumsden in Lucknow when Saadat 'Ali 
Khan succeeded to the regency of Oude 
(A.H. 1212). 

He had been attached in the first place to 
the service of Maharajah Amrit Eao, who 
by order of the Governor- General Marquis 
Wellesley took up his residence in Benares. 
There the author met the English Agent, 
Mr. Wm. Aug. Brooke, through whose in- 
fluence be obtained the conversion of his 
personal JagTrinto an hereditary one. As a 
compliment to that gentleman, whose Per- 
sian title was Hishmat ud-Daulah, he gave 
the name of Hishmat i Kashmir to the pre- 
sent work, which was completed, as stated at 
the end, in Benares, A.H. 1245, A.D. 1830. 
The author adds that he had been repeatedly 
sent on political missions to Nepaul by 
Governor Duncan (Jonathan Duncan, then 

resident in Benares), and that his reports 
had been submitted to Col. Kirkpatrick, 
translated and printed. 

Maulavi 'Abd ul-Kadir Khan is mentioned 
in Col. Wm. Kirkpatrick's account of Ne- 
paul, pp. xi. and 367, as a member of the 
mission sent to Khatmandii A.D. 1793. 

The present work is based upon an earlier 
account of Kashmir, written about A.H. 
1188 by Muhammad Badi" ud-Din Abul- 
Kasim Aslam poetically surnamed Mughni, 
and entitled 'ioaJ ji^, to which 

the author made considerable additions. It 
is divided into four books (Chaman) treat- 
ing respectively of Kashmir, Tibet and Kal- 
makistan, Badakhshan, and the highlands of

The author, who does not give his name, 
states that he compiled it from thirty works 
in the space of four years, and completed it 
in the 8.5th year of the reign of 'Alamgir 
(A.H. 1102-3). He was evidently a Hindii ; 
for he mentions at the end, fol. 60 a, as the 
most eminent Munshi of the age, Mir Anand, 
his paternal uncle and preceptor, who had 
grown up in the service of R<ii Bihririmal (or 
Bhiiramal ; see Elliot, vol. vii. p. 168), the 
Divan of Dara Shikuh, and had subsequently 
acted as Munshi to Amir Khan from A.H. 
1068 to 1090. 

Amir Khan, originally called Mir MirPm, 
was governor of Kabul from A.H. 1088 to 
his death, A.H. 1109. See Ma'agir ul-Umara,

the Timurides from Bfihar to Akbar. 

Author: Mirza "Ala ud-Daulah Kazvini, 
Beg. L-.'tSSl ^] ^SU'^j ^,Ss j.'iJ/jlyl ^lix. 

The writer was the son of Mir Yahya, the 
author of the Lubb ut-Tavarikh (see p. 104 b), 
and the younger brother of Mir 'Abd ul-Latif, 
the preceptor of Akbar (p. 57 6). See 
Mir'at i Jahan-numa, fol. 389, Ma'agir ul- 
Umara, Add. 6568, fol. 561, and Blochmann, 
Ain i Akbari, p. 447, note 2. Badii'uni men- 
tions him under the Takliallus Kami, vol. iii. 
p. 97, as one of the poets of Akbar's court. 

The contents of the biographical portion 
of the work have been stated by Sprenger, 
Oude Catalogue, pp. 46 — 55. 

The present extracts comprise the preface 
and table of contents, the historical intro- 
duction, which concludes with a full account 
of Akbar, brought down to JamadalL, A.H.

III. Poll. 105—170. JU^g)^, an exten- 
sive Tazkirah of Persian poets by Naksh 
'All, ijiSi 

The author, who gives his name incidentally 
on fol. 120 b, appears to have written shortly 
after the accession of Shah 'Alam, which 
took place in Jumada I., A.H. 1173. In a 
notice devoted to that prince, fol. 116, he 
says that a few months had elapsed since he 
had been seated on the throne by the Vazir 
ul-Mamalik Shuja' ud-Daulah. The title 
^Uo jVj, which as a chronogram stands for 
A.H. 1174, was probably meant to convey 
the date of composition. The work has 
lieen noticed, but without author's name, by 
Dr. Sprenser in the Oude Catalogue, p. 152. 

The MS. from which the extracts were 
taken comprises only three sections of that 
bulky compilation, viz. Chamans iii. — v. 
Chaman iii. contains notices of kings who 




liad a taste for poetiy, Cliaman iv. notices 
of Vazirs and Amirs, both in aljoliabetical 
order. Cliaman v. is stated to comprise tlie 
lives of .322 poets who flourished from the 
time of Hariin al-Rashid to A.H. 800. 

The present extracts consist of the table of 
contents of Chanians iii. and iv., of the 
preface to each, and of detached notices from 
Chaman iii., fol. 113 a, and from Chaman 
iv., fol. 153 T). 

In the preamble to Chaman iii. the 
author says that he had devoted considerable 
space to that section on account of the utility 
of history and of his exceeding fondness for 
its pursuit.

The author states in the preface that he 
compiled this work in Ahmadnagar (Deooan) 
A.H. 1036, a date expressed by its title, and 
that ho was then attached to the service of 
Navviib Sipahdar Khan, to whose biography 
an appendix is devoted. 

Sipalidiir Khrm, whose original name was 
Mirza Muhammad Sllih, was a native of 
Tabriz, and an adopted son of Shrdi Bog 
Mirza, with whom he came to India A.H. 
1000, and whom he succeeded in the thir- 
teenth year of Jahrmgir as governor of 
Ahmadnagar. He died A.H. 1054. See 
Ma'asir ul-Umara, fol. 305. 

The extracts relate chiefly to the reign of 
Jahangir and to the events of which Ahmad- 
nagar was the theatre. See for an account of

The author, whose name does not appear, 
was the son of 'Afif ud-Din Sayyid Hasan 
ul-Husaini, Kazi of Mecca, and was staying, 
as he states incidentally, fol. 279 h, in that 
city with his father in A.H. 961. He quotes 
Ibnul-A.5lr, Ibn Ka§ir, Abul-Fida, Ibn Hajar, 
Sharaf ud-Din Yazdi, Daulatshah, Bahjat ut- 
Tavarikh (see p. 881 «), and the following

and a history of the Uzbak Khrdvans by the 
Hafiz Muhammad Tashkandi, grandson of 
'Alii ud-Din ul-Kuslii (see Haj. Khal. vol. ii. 
p. 135). He refers also occasionally to oral 
information received from the last-named 

The MS., from which the extracts were 
taken, was in the Moty Mahall, Lucknow. 
It is described as a small folio of 817 pages, 
dated A.H. 1127. It is wrongly lettered

This is the last work of the celebrated 
historian, written a short time before his 
death. According to the preface, the author 
received Ilumayuu's commands for its com- 
position on being introduced to the royal 
presence in Gwalior, i.e. about the begin- 
ning of A.H. 941 (see Erskinc, History of 
India, vol. ii. p. 14). 

Kwand Amir subsequently accompanied 
the emperor to Mandu, where he died in the 
same year. See Firishtah, vol. i. p. 402. 

An account of the work, with some ex- 
tracts, will be found in Elliot's History of

From a diffuse preface it may be gathered 
that the author, who in liis verses called 
himself Kudrat, left his native place for the 
Carnatic A.H. 1227, and lived there under 
three successive Navvabs, viz. A'zam Jah, 
his son "Azim ud-Daulah, by whom he was 
appointed guardian of the late Navvab's 
tomb with the title of Khan, and "Azim ud- 
Daulah's son, Amir ul-Hind Viilajah. The 
last-named prince, who succeeded his father 
as an infant A.H. 1241, was nineteen years 
of age, when the present work was dedicated 
to him A.H. 1258. It was compiled, as 
stated in the preface, from the following

The author, whose later work Tarikh i 
MuzaflFari has been noticed p. 282 b, says in 
the preface that he completed the present 
compilation A.H. 1209 ; but his account of 
the Durranis is brought down to A.H. 1211. 

The extracts are as follows : — Preface,

event mentioned in the extracts is the taking 
of Daulatabad and the capture of Fath Khan, 
son of Malik 'Anbar, by Khan-Khanan Ma- 
liiibat Khan, which happened A.H. 1042. 
As the account of the 'Adil-shahis comes to 
a close with the accession of Sultan Muham- 
mad 'Adil Shah, whose reign ended A.H. 
1048, the time of composition must fall 
between the two years last mentioned. 

There are, however, two passages of later 
date, foil. 342 b, 372 b, in which A.H. 1078 
is designated as the current year.

Author : Muhammad Khair ud-Din s^s^° 
Beg. Ji/aj j> 0^ c*-il}-»> Ij ^'.^ ^j' J (_)^'-*>^ 

Some account of the author's life has 
been given p. 946 a. He states in the pre- 
face that having been called by Asaf ud- 
Daulah, A.H. 1206, from his native place to 
Lucknow, he had been shown there by 
Doctor Bruce a Gwaliyar-Namab (see p. 
303 b), which he found defective in matter 
and badly written. He was therefore induced 
to recast it into better shape and to supple- 
ment it with an account of the brilliant 
achievements of the English arms, of which 
he had been an ocular witjiess. 

The writer, who, it appears, had been 
attached by General Stibbert to the staff of 
Captain Wm. Bruce, bead of the commis- 
sariat of Major Popham's force, devotes the 
greater part of the work to a detailed account 
of the capture of Gwalior by the latter (A.D. 
1780), of the operations subsequently carried 
on by Colonel Camac against Mahaji Sind- 
biyah, and finally of the recapture of Gwalior 
and Gohad by the Marattali chief. The 
latest event recorded is the death by poison 
of Rana Jhatar Singh in Gwalior, A.H. 1200.

This is the first of a set of seven uniform 
volumes, Or. 1839 — 181.5, written for Sir 
Henry EUiot by his Munshi Maulabakhsh 
in or about the year 1841 (see Or. 1843, 
fol. 121 b). They contain extracts from a 
vast number of Persian MSS. of a most 
miscellaneous description, arranged without 
any system. A table of contents is prefixed 
to each volume. 

The extracts, which seldom exceed two or 
three small pages, are generally taken from 
the preamble of the works, and conclude 
with a notice of the size of the original MSS. 
They are too short to be of much use, and 
far too numerous to be separately described. 

The present volume contains extracts from 
123 MSS. It begins with Makasid ul-Auliya, 
a history of the prophets (by Mahmud 
B. Ahmad Earyabi, see Or. 1968, fol. 21), 
and ends with Hada'ik ul-Anvar by Eakhr

Bardurani, called in India Rohilah, fol. 32 b. 
IV. Sur, or Tiisufzai, fol. 43 a. 

The work, which contains no date, was ap- 
parently written during the first reign of 




Sliuja" ul-Mulk, and shortlj' after the death 
of the Vazir Shir Muhammad Khan (A.H. 
1223), which is recorded on fol. 10 b. The 
author states, fol. 4 a, that the Durranis had 
been, at the time of writing, for sixty-three 
years in possession of the sovereign power. 
Counting from A.H. 1160, when Ahmad 
Shall assumed the royal title, this would 
give A.H. 1223 as the date of composition.

The author, who does not give his name, 
was a witness of the events related in the 
latter portion of the work. He states at the 
end that, after serving two years under Cap- 
tain John Kennaway, he was licensed on the 
last day of Zulka'dah A.H. 1196, and went 
back to Haidarabad. In a later addition he 
records the death of Haidar *Ali, which

The author, who has been already noticed, 
p. 328 a, was an eye-witness of the events 
related. The period he embraces extends 
from the 19th of Sha'brm A.H. 1195, when 
he landed at Baksar with the Governor- 
General, Mr. Hastings, on his way to Benares, 
to the 27tli of Ramazan in the same year. 

The date written in the last line, " the 
15th of Zulhijjah, A.H. 1195, corresponding 
to November 1778," relates apparently to the 
completion of the work, which in the subscrip-

and a reference to 'Alamgir II. (A.H. 
1167—1173), fol. 48 a, shows that the col-

The author, who has been already noticed 
pp. 369 b, 973 a, shows by an elaborate 
system of interpretation how the Hindu 
lea-end is to be adapted to Muslim ideas, how 
for instance Mahadev is to be taken as a king 
of the Jinns, another mythological being to 
be turned into Adam, a third into Muham-

and Mir Fath Ullah Shirazi, mentioned in the

Mir Fath Ullah, a Sayyid of Shiraz and 
pupil of Mir Ghiyas ud-Din Mansur 
(p. 820 a), rose to great eminence in mathe- 
matics and natural philosophy. 'Adil Shah 
called him to Bijapur and made him his 
Vakil. Akbar, to whose court he was in- 
vited A. II. 991, placed him jointly with 
Bajali Todar Mai at the head of the financial 
administration. His career was cut short 
by a premature death A.H. 997 in Kashmir, 
whither he had proceeded in the train of 
Akbar. See Ead.i'uni, vol. ii. p. 369, vol. iii.

[Sir Henry C. Rawlinson.] 

A work on general history from the 
earliest times to A.H. 815. 

Beg. Ayi^ ico.a-^ j ,_jijjijiT ji5 MS'i-' 
There is neither preface nor title. The 
author, whose name is not given, appears to 
have been a dependent of Timhr's grandson. 
Amir Zadah Iskandar B. "Umar Shaikh (see 
p. 868 a), whom he calls His Highness the 
Snltan ^^UaU CJj^. He wrote in A.H. 815 
and 816, at a time when Mirza Iskandar 
was holding his Court in Shiraz as viceroy 
of the province of Ears. 

The first date is mentioned as the current 
vear on fol. 219 a. The second may be 
inferred from another passage, fol. 305, where 
the author's royal patron, left in charge of 

the government of Ears during liis father's 
absence in A.H. 795, is stated to have ruled 
it with such mature wisdom (he was then 
nine years old) that " now," after a lapse of 
twenty-one years, he had been able to re- 
enact withoutalteration theedietstheii issued. 
The author refers occasionally to his record 
of that prince's life, which, however, is not 
found in this copy. 

The MS. begins with a short chapter on 
creation, fol. 1 b, followed at the bottom of 
the same page by the heading : /i Jjl ^ 

The work is divided into sections called 
Kism, the first three of which, sub-divided 
into Tahakat, or dynasties, are contained in 
the present volume. 

Two gaps in the original text have been 
cunningly disguised by the insertion of 
parallel extracts from a later work, the Khu- 
lasat ul-Akhbar (see p. 96 L). The first, 



foil. 2 — 5, contains an account of the pa- 
triarchs from Adam to Noah. The second, 
foil. 137 — 155, extends from the Khilafat of 
al-Mu'tamid to the beginning of the reign 
of Sultan Mahmud Ghaznavi. They cor- 
respond to foil. 5—9, and 190—216, of 
Or. 1292. A chapter of the same work on 
the Ismfi'ilis of the Maghrib has been added 
in the margins of foil. 196 — 199.

The work is partly based on the Jrimi' ut- 
Taviirikh and the Guzidah ; but it is fuller 
than the latter, and comes down to nearly a 

century later. In the recent period it con- 
tains original matter, and lias the value of 
a contemporary record. This is especially 
the case wath the account of Timiir, which 
was -ivritten within nine years of the em- 
peror's death, and twelve years earlier than 
the Zafar Nymah of Sharaf ud-Din Yazdi. 
It is characterised by the marked prominence 
it gives to the doings of Amirzadah 'Umar 
Shaikh, father of the author's patron. 

The margins of foil. 8 — 11 contain a Persian 
version of an Arabic treatise on religious 
obligations by Abul Lais Samarkand!, en- 
titled ^^il-j'iS* iJJ-j-'i, the contents of which are 
given by Loth in the India Office Catalogue, 
p. 34, and by Fliigel, from an imperfect copy, 
in the Vienna Catalogue, vol. iii. p. 268. 

Abul-Lais Nasr B. Muhammad us-Samar- 
kandi died, according to the Wafi Ml- 
Wafayat, fol. 124, A.H. 375. The present 
version differs considerably in the number 
and arrangement of the chapters from the 
texts above mentioned. The B.ibs, as enu- 
merated in the preface, are seventy in number. 
The text contains a few more, but, beyond 
Bab 68, they are neither numbered nor dis- 
tinguished by headings. The date of tran- 
scription is Muharram A.H. 925 (A.D. 1519). 

On the tirst page is a contemporary record 
of the death of Shrdi Safi in Kashan, on the 
12th of Safar A.H. 1052, and of the subse- 
quent accession of Shah "Abbas H.

Author : Muhammad Amin Ban! Isra'il, 

Beg. j\^S3l.ijl (^Ijj Ai^\ Jl^ ^''^ ^ #UJv« 

The author had been some time, as he 
states in the preface, in the service of Rai 
Dak'hni Ram, after whose death he was 
preparing to return to his native home, 
when marks of favour received from a new 
patron, Rai Budlicliand jJ^^^j-^ induced 
him to stay. It was by desire of the latter 
that the present work was compiled in 
A.H. 1146. The date is expressed by the 
chronogram ^\yr j\ CM^. The 

author's own letters are written in the 
names of Rai Dak'hni Ram, of Rai Budh- 
chand (who was, as appears from one of 
them, fol. 139, a vassal of the virtual 
sovereign of the Deccan, Nizam ul-Mulk 
Asaf Jah), of Pazl Ullah Khan, and, lastly, 
of Sa'ildat Ullah Khan, who was governor of 
2 B 2 



the Carnatio and died A.H. 1145. See 
Ma'agir ul-Umara, fol. 319. 

The pieces are classed according to sub- 
jects in a number of sections called Fasl, 
the headings of which are often wanting. 

Contents: — 1. Praise of God, fol. 3 a. — 
2. Invocations oUU*, fol. 17 a- — 3. Praise 
of the Prophet and his successors, fol. 31 b. 
— Familiar letters by Abul-Fazl and others, 
fol. 44 b. — 6. Royal letters, 
^^^->, including letters of Shah "Abbas I. 
to Akbar and Jahangir, of 'Abbas II. to 
the Subahdar of Kandahar, of Muhammad 
Shah to 'Abd un-Nabi Khan, and of Akbar 
to the Khankhanan, fol. 77 b. — Letters of 
congra tulation, fol. 117 b. — S. Letters of 
thanks for presents, fol. 156 a. — Letters to 
friends, fol. 189 a. — Bequests and petitions, 
fol. 211 b. — 11. Acknowledgment of the 
receipt of letters, fol. 238 b. 

In the first sections are found specimens 
of ornate prose by Jaml, Mir Husaini Sadat 
(see p. 608 a), Muhannnad Eafi' Va'iz, Mirza 
Muhsina, Tughrai Mashhadi, Mulla Munir 
Laliauri, 'Abd ul-Kadir Jilanl, "Abd Ullah 
Ansari, and others. But the greater part 
of the collection consists of letters written 
in India in the eleventh and twelfth cen- 
turies of the Hijrah, among which those of 
Abul-Fazl, Shukr Ullah Khan, Mirza Bidil, 
and the author, are of frequent occurrence. 

There are also some letters written in the 
reign of Aurangzib by the author's grand- 
father. Shaikh Muhammad Ashraf.

Beg. i^Ui- j« (_ji>li»j J o"^*" } 

Mr. Pfander, who had been attached for 
upwards of ten years to the German mission 
in Georgia, was expelled by the Russian 
government in 1836, and joined the Indian 



missions in 1838. An account of his life 
and works will be found in the Calcutta 
Review, vol. iv. pp. 435 — 450. 

The work is divided into three books (Bab), 
treating of the following questions : — I. Has 
the text of the Holy Scriptures been cor- 
rupted ? fol. 14 b. II. Do the doctrines of 
the Old and New Testaments prove their 
divine inspiration ? fol. 38 b. III. Is the 
Goran the word of God, and is Muliammad 
the prophet of God? fol. 133 a. 

The date of composition, A.H. 1248, is

The work has been printed in Agra (for 
the first time apparently without date), and 
re-printed in 1849 and 1850. An English 
translation by the Rev. R. H. Weakley has 
been published in London, 1866. The author 
has written, besides the present work, three 
other controversial tracts, viz. Hall ul-Ishkal, 
Tarik ul-Hayat, and Miftah ul-Asrar (the 
last in Hindustani), which have been printed 
in Agra, 1847 and 1850. His " Remarks on

The author gives in the preface the par- 
tiality and inaccuracy of previous Tazkirahs 
as the reason which induced him to compile 
the present work. It appears to have been 
written A.H. 1165; the date is fixed by the 
statement, fol. 11 6, that the poet Anjam, 
whose death is known from other sources to 
have happened A.H. 1159 (see the Oude 
Catalogue, p. 203), had died six years before 
the time of composition.

The work was written for Aka Muliammad 
Ma'siim, son of the noble Haji Muhammad 
Ibrahim, and apparently a pupil of the 
author, who praises him for his eager pursuit 
of the elegancies of style. It begins with a 
few preliminary chapters relating to the con- 
cordance of honorific surnames with proper 
names, to rules to be observed in writing 
letters, to the epithets usually applied to tlie 
months, and to titulature. After which 
come models of letters to be addressed by 
Amirs to men of their own rank, to the 
Hakim Bashi, Mustaufi, Munajjim Bashi, 
Mir Akhur Bashi, Mir Shik;>r Bashi, to men 
of letters, doctors of the law, poets, etc., 
lastly examples of familiar notes to be written 
on various occasions.

of European influence. Of these the last 
two are signed Muhammad Zaman and dated 
A.H. 1086. 

The rich "Unvan, which covers two oppo- 
site pages at the beginning, encloses the fol- 
lowing lines in praise of the calligraphy and

The Divan of Eiyazi, consisting of Ghazals 
alphabetically arranged with a few Euba'is. 


Mir 'All Shir, who mentions Eiyazi Samar- 
kand! among the poets who died before A.H. 
896 (Lata'if, fol. 27), describes him as proud, 
conceited, and ill-tempered, but felicitous in 
some of his Ghazals, and, quoting the open- 
ing line of one of these (which occurs on 
foi. 19 of this copy), states that he was so 
unreasonable as to argue against an obvious 
improvement suggested by 'Ali Shir. The 
same in Haft Iklim, fol. 570. 

Eiyazi died, according to Tald Kashi, A.H. 
884. See the Oude Catalogue, p. 20, and 
the St. Petersburg Catalogue, p. 311. 

In the Eiyaz ush-Shu'ara, fol. 181, he is 
confounded with a later poet of that name, 
Maulana Eiyazi, of Zavah, who composed a 
poetical history of SuUan Husain, and died 
under Shah Ismfi'il, A.H. 921, upwards of 

eighty years old. See Sam Mirza, fol. 103,

Baluchi vocabulary explained in Persian, 
by Kamalan Gichki, 



(In an interlinear gloss which accompanies 
the first lines of the metrical prologue the 
word i^U,* is rendered by j.<y .) 

Prom a long introduction written in a 
barbarous and ill-spelt Persian the following 
facts may be gathered. The author belongs 
to the Gichki tribe," the chief of which, Phanu 
Sing iJi--- i'ii, came originally from Lahore to 
BaKiohistan. The Gichkis settled in a locality 
called Kuchah Gichak, whence their name, 
and subsequently in Phajgiir (Panjgiir). 
Kamrdan, so called after his grandfather 
Kamal Khiin, is the son of Amir Hashim, 
and fourth in descent from Malik Dinar 
Gichki, who held sway in Kech ^ (Kej), 
Tumi^h (Tump), and the whole of Makran, 
until he was vanquished and put to death

by Nasir Klian, ruler of BaluoListan, and 
feudatory of Nadir Sliah and of Alimad Shah 

With regard to his own career, the author 
tells us that, when Colonel Ross came to 
Keoh with a military escort, he was able to 
impart to that officer much useful infor- 
mation about the country and its history, 
and wi'ote at his request an account of it 
entitled Keoh Namah. He subsequently 
attached himself to Captain (now Lieut. 
Colonel) S. Miles, whom he met in the town 
of Sami and accompanied on a tour of in- 
spection through Baluchistan. It was in 
compKance with the parting wish of Captain 
Miles, from whom he took leave in the port 
of 'Urmarah ij-oj^, that he compiled the 
present vocabulary, which was completed 
on the eighth of Eajab, A.H. 1290. 

In his conclusion Kamalan offers his ser- 
vices to future travellers, with the proviso 
that due consideration shall be paid to his 
rank and birth, and he dwells upon his claims 
to the liberal patronage of the Company and 
of the Queen. 

Lieut. Eoss, who met the author in Sami, 
September, 1865, calls him Mir Kumalan, 
nephew of the Gichki Sardar of Eanjgar, 
and describes him as " somewhat of a Persian 
scholar," and the author of a history of Mak- 
ran in Persian verse. See Notes on Mekran, 
Transactions of the Bombay Geographical 
Society, vol. 18, p. 61.

P. 74 a, 11. 7—13. Read as follows : Sul- 
tan Muhammad B. Tughluk is described by 
a contemporary writer, Ziyai Barani, as 
distinguished for literary taste and great ele- 
gance of style. See Tarikh i Eiruz-sh;ihi, 
p. 463, and Elliot's History, vol. iii. p. 235. 
His cousin and successor, Firuz Shah, was 
also an accomplished writer, and left in his 
Futiihat i Firuz-shahl (see p. 620 b,) a valuable 
record of the reforms and institutions of 
Ms reign. 

P. 84 6. Shaikh Yfisuf Budh, of Irich, a 
disciple of Khwajali Ikhtiyar ud-Din (d. 809), 
of Sayyid Jakil Bukhari, and of Shaikh Pifljii. 
Kattrd (d. 827, V. Eiyaz ul-Auliya, f. 136.), 
is known as the translator of the Minhaj 
ul-'AbidIn of Imam Ghazah. He died A.H. 
834. See Akhbar ul-Akhyar, fol. 128, where 
the author of Tarikh i Muhammadi is noticed 
as one of his Marids. 

P. 86 b. "A general history, etc." The Paris 
Library possesses a copy of the same work, 
extracts from which, transcribed for Sir H. 
Elliot, are preserved in Or. 1908, foil. 58—61, 
110—116. In these the work is designated 
as Tarikh i Sadr i Jahan, evidently from 
the author's name, who is there called Malik 
ul-Knzat Sadr i Jahan Faiz Ullah B. Zain ul- 
Abidin B. Husain Banbani. Speaking of the 
events of A.H. 907, the author says that he 
was at that time engaged upon this history, 
in Muliammadabad Bedar, whither he had 
been sent as ambassador by his sovereign 
Mahmud Shah. 

Another copy of the same work. Or. 1885, 
wrongly inscribed Tabakat i Nasiri, is de- 
scribed further on, p. 885 a. See also 
Sprenger, Journal of the As. Soc. of Bengal, 

vol. xxiii. p. 286. The Tarikh i Sadr i Jahan 
Gujrati is one of the authorities quoted by 
Sarup Chand in his Sahili ul-Akhbiir. See 
Elliot's History of India, vol. viii. p. 314. 

P. 93 b. " 'The geographical appendix to 
Eauzat us-Safa." It was written A.H. 900. 
The date of composition occurs in most 
copies at the end of the article on Khwa- 

P. 96 b. Khwand Amir mentions the author 
of Rauzat us-Safa as his maternal grand- 
father in his notice of Mir Khwand's father, 
Burhfm ud-Din Khavand Shah, a holy Say- 
yid of Mavara-nnahr, who settled in Balkh, 
and survived by some years his friend Shaikh 
Baha ud-Din 'Umar, deceased in Herat, A.H. 
857. See Habib us-Sij'ar, vol. iii., Juz 3, 
pp. 198, 171, 179. 

In another passage, ib., p. 191, Khwand 
Amir speaks of his own father, Khwiijah Hu- 
mam ud-DIn Muh. B. Khwiijah Jalal ud-Din 
Muh. Shirazi, and states that he acted as 
vazir to Sultan Mahmiid Mirza during the 
greater part of his reign. That prince, the 
third son of Sultan Abu Sa'id, driven from 
Herat by Sultan Husain after his father's 
death, A.H. 873, made himself master of 
Hisar, Tirmiz, and Badakhshan, succeeded 
his brother Snltiin Ahmad in Samarkand, 
A.H. 899, and died in the ensuing year. See 
Habib us-Siyar, ib., and Babar's Memoirs, 
pp. 26 — 35. 

Khwand Amir's son, Sayyid 'Abd Ullah 
Khan, died in Kashmir, A.H. 997. Ma'asir 
ul-Umara, f. 394. 

P. 98 a. " Habib us-Siyar." In an appen- 
dix found in some copies only, and quoted 
at length in Mir'at i Jahan-numa, fol. 345, 
Khwrmd Amir records his journey to India, 
A.H. 934, and his introduction to Babar, 
A.H. 935. He adds that lie accompanied 
the emperor on his expedition to Bengal, 
working on the road, as circumstances and 
his enfeebled health would allow, at his 
great history, and that he completed the 



work (or its final revision) at a place near 
the confluence of the Siru with Ganges (in 
the month of Sha'ban, A.H. 935 ; see Babar's 
Memoirs, p. 411). A translation of the 
main part of that appendix is to he found in 
Elliot's History of India, vol. iv. pp. 143, 155. 

P. 101 a. "Lubh ut-Tavarlkh." The 
author's name, which is not found in the 
preface, occurs in his account of tlie reign 
of Ya'kub Beg, Add. 23,512, fol. 159. He 
calls himself Yahj'a B. "Abd ul-Latif ul- 
Husaini, and states that he was born on the 
19th of Zulka'dah, A.H. 885. 

P. 119 b. " Rauzat ut-Tahirin." In his 
chapter on the Portuguese, Or. 1762, fol. 
188 b, the author, Tahir Muhammad, records 
an incident of his life. In A.H. 987 he was 
sent by Akbar to the garrison of Goa, and 
proceeded thence, after a year's stay, to 
Kambayit, then governed by his father 
Kliwajah "Imad ud-Din Hasan, with whom 
he was admitted to the royal presence. 

An inscription noticed p. 788 b shows 
that he went, A.H. 1015, in attendance upon 
Sultan Khuram (Shahjahan) to meet Jahan- 
glr in Lahore. 

P. 121 b. "Afsah ul-Akhbar." Prince 
Muradbakhsh, to whose service the author 
was attached, was appointed Silbahdar of 
Gujrat in Rab!' II., A.H. 1064, and held 
that of&ce till A.H. 1067, when he pro- 
claimed himself sovereign. See Mir'at i 
Ahmadi, fol. 92. Although brought no 
further down than the accession of Shrdi- 
jahan, the Afsah ul-Akhbar must have been 
compiled towards the close of his reign. 

P. 125 a. "Tulifat ul-Akbyar." The 
author's name has been accidentally left out. 
It is Muhammad Safi B. Vali, of Kazvin, 

P. 125 b. " Mii'at ul-'Alam." The author- 
ship of Bakhtavar Khan was a mere cour- 
teous fiction. The work had been compiled 
by Muhammad Baka of Saharanpur, after 
whose death two new editions were pub- 

lished, with the real author's name, under 
the title of Mir'at i Jahan-numa. See 
p. 890 a. 

P. 128 a. " Tarikh i Muhammadshahi." It 
is stated in the Tarikh i Muhammadi, fol. 
296, that Eai Khwushlial Chand, Kayath, 
of Mathurca (evidently the author of the 
above work), died in DehU, A.H. 1155, at 
the age of upwards of seventy. 

Another portion of the same work is 
described p. 894. See also Elliot's History, 
vol. viii. p. 70. 

P. 129 a. " Mir'at us-Safii." An earlier 
recension of the same work, entitled Burhan 
ul-Eutuh, and dedicated, A.H. 1148, to 
Burhan ul-Mulk, is noticed p. 893 a. 

P. 131 a. " Parhat un-Nazirin." Other 
copies give the name of the personage for 
whom the work was compiled. It was 
Colonel J. B. Gentil. See p. 823 a, and 
Elliot's History, vol. iii. pp. 163—174. 

P. 131 b. Aka 'Abd ul-Baki B. Khwajah 
Aka Babai Kurd Nahavandi, author of 
]\Ia'a5ir i Ealjlmi, died A.H. 1042. See 
T,\rikh i Muhammadi, fol. 170 b. 

P. 132 a. The career of Shrdmavaz Khan 
has been sketched by Sayyid Muhammad 
Eiza in a separate notice, Or. 1752, foil. 
307—309, and in Akhharat i Hind, fol. 178. 
He was a descendant of Sa'd Ullah Khan, 
the vazir of Shahjahfm. Having been ap- 
pointed preceptor to Shilh 'Alam's favourite 
daughter, he so completely won the favour 
and confidence of the blind emperor, as 
to become the solo manager of the imperial 
household, and retained that post until his 
death, which .took place six months after 
Akbar Shuh II. 's accession, i.e. A.H. 1222. 
He was succeeded in his office by Najm ud- 
Daulah Iftikhar ul-Mulk, father of Sayyid 
Muhammad Eiza. Mir'at Aftabnuma is 
described in Elliot's History, vol. viii. p. 332. 

P. 135 «. " Zinat ut-Tavarikh, a general 
history, etc., to A.H. 1226." Head to A.H. 


P. 138 a. Jannat ul-Firdaus. In a copy 
described in Elliot's History, vol. viii. p. 413, 
under the title of Jinan ul-Firdaus, there is 
a continuation written by Tajammul Husain, 
A.H. 1244. It consists of two chapters, 
treating (1) of the Timurides of India, (2) of 
the vazira of Oude and the Nazims of Bengal. 
The author of the original work is there 
called Mirza Muhammad Yusufi. The Nis- 
bah Tusufi is probably due to a misreading 
of the word " in such a manner," which 

in the preface immediately follows the au- 
thor's name. 

P. 140 a. Tabsirat ul-'Avam. The pre- 
sumption that the author lived in the 
seventh century of the Hijrah is corrobo- 
rated by the following fact. Sayyid Murtaza 
'Alam ul-Huda is mentioned in Or. 2073 
(see p. 1061 b) as the translator of an Arabic 
genealogy of the Imams, Ansab Namah, 
brought to Persia A.H. 653 by a Sayyid Abu 
Tillib, who died a few years later in Sabzavar. 

P. 141 a. " Dahistan." Mulisin Pani was 
bom in Kashmir, wliile the author of the 
Dahistan was a native of Patna. In a full 
notice of the former's life, an abstract of 
which is given in the Oude Catalogue, 
p. 393, his contemporary. Shir Khan, states 
(Or. 231, fol. 104) that he died in Kashmir, 
A.H. 1081. In the Vakiat i Kashmir, fol. 
133, the date is A.H. 1082. 

In confirmation of what has been stated 
as to the probable author of tlie Dahistan 
may be added the testimony of Arzii, who 
in his preface to Majma' un-Nafa'is ascribes 
the work to Mulla Mtibad. See Ouscley's 
Notices, p. 182. 

P. 1 44 b. Kamal ud-Din Husain Khwa- 
razmi died, according to Maj alls us-'Ushshak, 
fol. 126, A.H. 839. The composition of the 
Maksad ul-Aksa must be placed between 
A.H. 829, the date of Amir Shahmalik's 
death, and A.H. 834, when his son Amir 
Ibrahim was driven from Khwarazm by the 
invasion of Uzbak Khan. See Matla' us- 



Sa'dain, foil. 152 b, 167 b. A copy of the 
Maksad is noticed in the Melanges Asia- 
tiques, vol. v. p. 232. 

P. 147 a. Jamal ud-Din 'Ata Ullah died 
A.H. 926. Tabakat i Sliahjahg,ni, fol. 160,

account of that work will be found in 
Morley's Catalogue, p. 16. 

P. 161 b. 'Abd Ullah B. Pazl Ullah, 
better known as Va.ssaf, left a Divan in 
which he takes the poetical surname of 
Sharaf. See Ouseley's Notices, p. 230, Riyuz 
ush-SIiuara, fol. 227, and the Oude Cata- 
logue, p. 566. 

P. 164 b. Tarikh i Piashidi. Some extracts 
have been given by Mr. R. B. Shaw in the 
Journal of the Koyal Geographical Society, 
vol. 46, pp. 277—298. 

'Abd ur-Rashid Kh;m, to whom the work 
is dedicated, died after a long reign A.H. 
971, when his son "Abd ul-Karim Khan suc- 
ceeded. See Mir'at ul-'Alam, fol. 1 74. 

P. 170 b. Shanb i Ghazan, from which the 
author's Nisbah is derived, is the name of a 
lofty cupola erected by Ghazan for his own 
sepulture, two miles S.W. of Tabriz, and 
surrounded by him with several colleges and 
other buildings of public utility. See Habib 
us-Siyar, vol. iii., Juz 1, p. 107, and Hammer, 
Geschiohte der Uchane, vol. ii. p. 163. It 
is now represented by a mound of bricks 
and a village called Shah Ghazan. See Mo- 
ricr, Second J ourney through Persia, p. 232. 

P. 177 b. Malfuzat i Amir Timur. The 
work is mentioned, under A.H. 1047, in the 
Padishah Kamah of 'Abd ul-Hamid, vol. i., 
part 2, p. 288, as translated from the Turki 
by Mir Abu Talib Turbati. A section con- 
taining Timur's recommendations to his 
grandson Mirza Pir Muhammad was sent by 
Shahjahan to prince Aurangzib in the Decoan 
for his benefit.

P. 179 a. Muhammad Afzal, son of Tarbi- 
yat Khan, a native of Turan, who had come 
to India under Jahangir, is desci-ibed as a 
sliilled horseman and an accomplished writer. 
He died A.H. 1001-2. See Ma'a§ir ul-Umara, 
fol. 120, and Tarikh i Muliammadi, foh 196. 

P. 183 S. Ma'agir ul-Khavaldn. Tlie author, 
Mirza Din Muhammad, wrote it for liis master 
Vazir ud-Daulah Muhammad Vazir Khan, 
Amir of Tonk. See Notices of the Tonk MSS., 
Or. 1937, fol. 6 b. Vazir Khan succeeded his 
father Amir Khan A.D. 1834, and died ia 
1864. See Hunter's Imperial Gazetteer, vol. 
ix. p. 102. 

P. 185 b. Iskandar Beg refers under A.H. 
995 to another incident in his career. He 
was then, he says, in his twenty-sixth year, 
and, although hitherto enrolled among the 
men of the pen, he was carried away by 
youthful ardour and joined the royal standard 
in Kazvin. It is stated in the Mir'at "A lam, 
fol. 483 b, that he died A.H. 1038. 

P. 186 a. Murtaza Kull Khan B. Murshid 
Kuh Khixn, governor of Ganjah, died A.H.

sade au Khwarezm, p. 201. 

P. 206 b. Pami, called by some 'Abd Ullah, 
and by others 'Abd ur-Rahman, is mentioned 
by Hafiz Abru, fol. 250, in Habib us-Siyar, 
vol. iii., Juz 2, p. 67, and in Haft Iklim, fol. 
266, as the author of an early history of 
Herat. ■ He was the panegyrist of 'Izz ud-Din 
' fjmar, the ancestor of the Kurts, who held 
Herat under Sultan Ghiya.s ud-Dia Muham- 
mad B. Sam (c. 550—599). 

Ilabi'i (Sadr ud-Din) Pilshanji wrote his 
Kurt Namah by order of Malik Fakhr ud- 
Din Kurt, who ruled in Herat from A.H. 699 
to his death, which happened A.H. 706. 
Having incurred the king's displeasure by his 
dissolute habits and unguarded talk, he was 
cast into prison, and died in confinement. 
See Habib us-Siyar, ib., pp. 70, 73, and Hafiz 

Abru, who quotes some verses of the Kurt 
Namah, foil. 270—282, and Ilaj. Khal., v. 170. 

P. 213 b. " Mal.imiid ul-Mu§anna." Read

un-Nu'man, fol. 145. 

P. 222 b. Muntakhab, ut-Tavirikh. Ba- 
da'uni fixes the date of completion by the 
following ingenious Tarikh, lijUi a.^ 
"a compendium without an equal," which, 
taken in arithmetical sense, means that from 
the number expressed by the word l_>'.35^\ i. e. 
1054, the value of the second letter (50) is to 
be deducted. Tliis gives 1004. The author 
died before the end of the same year. See 
the full account of Bada'uni and his works by 
Bloclimann, Journal of the Asiatic Soc. of 
Bengal, vol. 38, pp. 117—144, and Tarikh i 
Muhammadi, fol. 124. The Mir'at i Jahan- 
numa, however, gives A.H. 1006, and the 
author of the Tabakat i Shahjahani makes 
him die as late as A.H. 1024 under Jahangir. 

P. 223 b. " Tarikh i Hakki." The proper 
title of the work is Zikr ul-Muluk. It is so 
called by the author in his later works. 

P. 228 b. Rai Bindraban, Divan of Shah 
'Alam, was dismissed by Aurangzib during 
the siege of Bijapur, A.H. 1095, as implicated

P. 231 b. " Add. 6567." Read Add. 6564. 
The continuation above noticed is made up of 
three distinct works shorn of their titles and 
preambles, and written as a continuous text, 
viz., 1. the 'Ibrat Namah of Sayyid Muham- 
mad Kasim (see p. 939 a), fol. 339 a. 2. The 
anonymous Muhammad Shah Namah de- 
scribed p. 940 a, with appendix, fol. 407 a. 
3. The latter part of the Bayim i Vaki', 
corresponding to foil. 67 — 119 of Or. 181 
(see p. 381 i), fol. 457 a. 



Nearly tlie same contents are found in a 
MS. described p. 1008 a, Or. 1056. 

P. 238 a. Lachlimi Narayan Shaflk was the 
grandson of Bhagvandas, a Ehatri of Lahore, 
and the son of Mansaram who held for nearly 
forty years, under Nizam ul-Mulk Asafjah, 
the office of Sadr of the six Subalis of the 
Deccan. Shafik, who was born in Aurang- 
iibad A.H. 1158, entered the service of 'Ali 
Jah, son of Nizam 'Ali Khan, and died in the 
early part of the 13th century of the Ilijrali. 
He left two Tazkirahs, viz. Gul i Ra'na, a 
biography of Indian jwets (see p. 977 h), and 
Sham i Ghariban, or lives of the Persian 
poets who visited India. See Nata'jj ul- 
Afkar, Or. 1762, fol. 259 h. 

P. 247 a. Gulbadan Begam died, according 
to the Ikbal Namah i Jaliangiri,in Agra on the

'Abd ur-Ralfim, Calcutta, 1876-79. 

Rajah Barsingh Deo, Bondelah, the mur- 
derer of Abul-Pazl, died A.H. 1036. See 
Tarikh i Muliammadl, io\. 158, and Bloch- 
mann, Ain i Akbari, p. 488. 

P. 251 a. MuUa Shaida was a native of 
Pathpiir, near Agra ; but his family came 
from Mashhad. He attached himself suc- 
cessively to 'Abd ur-Rahim Khankhanan, and 
to Sultan Sliahriyar, and, after serving some 
time under Shahjahan, retired to Kashmir, 
where he died A.H. 1080. See Khizanah i 
"Amirah (Haft Asman, p. 138), and Khulasat 
ul-Afkfir, fol. 141. 

He made the greatest poets of his time, 
Kudsi, Kalim, and Ilahi, the butt of his 
pungent satires, and was much dreaded on 
account of his sarcastic vein. We find him, 
however, highly praised in the following con- 
temporary works : Tabakat i Shahjahani, fol. 
322, 'Amal i Sahh, fol. 698, and Tazldrah i Shir 
Khan, fol. 68. An incident related in the 

Riyaz ush-Shu'ara, fol. 246, shows that he 
was known as a poet as early as A.H. 1027. 
His best known composition is Daulat i 
Bidar, a Magnavi in the metro of Makhzan 

P. 261 b. " Mulakhkhas." The real date 
of 'Inayat Khan's death appears to be

of Simnan, and who is stated to have been 
tlien (A.H. 1002) engaged upon a history of 
the Decean. 

P. 316 a. " Tazkirat ul-Muluk." Tlie be- 
ginning above given shows that the copy

Turk A.H. 683, and Sultan Valad A.H. 712. 

P. 340 a. " Sadr ud-Din Musa, who died 
A.H. 758." This date relates to the death 
of jMalik ul-Ashraf. It is stated in Habib 
us-Siyar that Sadr iid-Din Miisa survived 
the defeat and death of that prince, and 
lived long enough to be the spiritual in- 
structor of Sayyid ICasim Anvar, horn A.H. 
757. From a Marsiyah composed by the 
latter it appears that Sadr ud-Din was close 
upon ninety when he died. See Habib us- 
Siyar, vol. iii., Juz 4, J). 11, and Jalian-ara, 
fol. 198. According to Kisas ul-Khakani,

P. 303 a. "Jlirza Janjanan." Mushafi, 
who calls liim Mirza Janjan, had heard from 
his own lips that he had received that name 
from Aurangzib. He was of Turkish descent, 
but born in India, and had, at the age of 
eighteen, sold all his property to embrace a 
religious life. He died in Dehli on the tenth 
of Muharram, A.H. 1195, from a pistol-shot 
fired at him by some Slii'ah fanatic, one of 
the retainers of Najaf Khan. The date is 
fixed by a chronogram composed by Mushafi, 
and confirmed by Tarikh i Muhammadi, fol. 
321. Compare the Oude Catalogue, p. 488, 
and Garcin, Litter. Hind., vol. ii. p. 297.

No. 21. 'Abd ul-HakTm Lahauri, takh. 
Hakim, son of Shadman Khan Uzbak, re- 
ceived from Muhammad Shiih at the begin- 
ning of the reign the title of Hakim Beg 
Khan ; but he subsequently left the service to 
adopt the garb and wandering life of a PakTr. 
In poetry he was a pupil of his townsman 
Afarin. He composed a Divan, and a Taz- 
kirah which he first called Tuhfat ul-Majrdis, 
and afterwards Mardum i Didah, a title sug- 
gested by Aztid Balgrfimi. He was still alive 
when Mushafi wrote, i.e. A.H. 1199. See 
"Ikd i Surayya, fol. 42. In the Naghmah i 
'Andalib, fol. 70, it is stated that Hakim 
died while travelling in Kashmir. See 
Bland, the Earliest Persian Biography, p. 172, 
and the Oude Catalogue, pp. 144, 155. 

A Tazkirah noticed p. 1037 b, iv., under 
the title of Muntakhab i Hakim, and de- 
scribed as an augmented edition of the 
Majma' un-Nafa'is, is probably identical with 
the Mardum i Didah. 

P. 370 b. " Narrative of a journey . . . 
by Abu Mu'in Nasir B. Kliusrau." The 
chief objections urged above against the 
identity of the author of the Safar Namah 
with the celebrated poet of the same name 
have been removed by new and truer data 
respecting the latter's life, drawn by Dr. 
Ethe from a careful perusal of his Divan. 
There the poet states that he was born A.H. 
394. He may well, therefore, have described 
his past life in A.H. 437 as a " dream oiforlij 


years" (Sefer Nameli, p. r). Ho was, more- 
OTOr, like the author of the Safar Niimah, 
a native of the province of Balkh, and had 
been likewise living some time in Marv. 
See Dr. Eth^'s introduction to the Raushana'i 
Ndmah, Zeitschrift der D. M. G., vol. 33, p. 
C05 ; and a full notice of the author's life, 
prefixed by M. Charles Schefer, of the In- 
stitut, to his edition of the " Scfer Nameh," 
Paris, 1881. 

The date given in Takvim ut-Tavririkh for 
the death of Nasir Khusrau, viz. A.H. 481, 
is probably correct.

Lodi, whose father was an intimate friend of

The Sanskrit title is apparently Parijataka, 
the name of a tree of paradise. 

P. 491 6. Risalat i Asadl Tusi. That 
work is probably due, as has been shown by 
Dr. Ethe, to "AH B. Ahmad Asadi, son of

died A.H. 854. Sec Eiyaz ush-Shu"ara, fol. 
274, and the Oude Catalogue, p. 72. 

P. 656 a. "Shah u Darvish." Babar, who 
refers to that poem in his Memoirs (Brskine's 
translation, p. 196), severely reflects on the 
immoral character of its theme. 

P. 663 b. " Mir Miran Ghiyas ud-Din." 
Mir Miran lived under Shah Tahmasp, who 
conferred upon him the offioe of Nakib and

mentioned by Amin Razi and by Taki 
Kashi as a living poet. He died A.H. 1004, 
a date fixed by the following chronogram 
quoted in the Eiyaz ush-Shu'ara, L_^yis- ^^J^ 

P. 667 b. V. Hakim Masih ud-Din Abul- 
Path left his native country, Gilan, at the time 
of its conquest by Shah Tahmasp, A.H. 974, 
and repaired, A.H. 983, to the court of 
Akbar, where he soon acquired great in- 
fluence. He died A.H. 997. See Ma'agir 
ul-Umara, fol. 137, Bada'uni, vol. iii. p. 197, 
and Bloohmann, Ain i Akbari, p. 424. 

P. 668 b. Shaikh Sharaf ud-DIn Panipati, 
better known as Abii Ali Kalandar, was, 
according to his own statement, a native of 
Irak, and had associated in his youth with 
Shams i Tabriz and Maulana Eumi. But 
he spent most of his time in India, first in 
Dehli, and afterwards in Panipat, where he 
died in great renown of sanctity. He lived 
under Sultan Ala ud-Din Khilji and Muham- 
mad Sliah B. Tughluk. See Akhbar ul- 
Akhyar, fol. 107, Haft Ikbm, fol. 147, and 
Riyaz ush-Shu'ara, fol. 225. 

It is stated, however, in the Mir'iit ul- 
'Alam, fol. 113, that he died before Nizam 
ud-Din Auliyii (A.H. 725), i.e. before the 
accession of Muhammad Shah, while the 
Mir'at Aftabnuma, fol. 112, gives the ninth 



of Ramazan, A.H. 724, as the precise date of 
his decease. 

A Magnavi ascribed to him has been 
printed in Cawnpore, 1872.

Jahannuma, fol. 4.03. 

P. 674 b. "Ummldi (died A.H. 925)." 
The above date, given by Sami for the death 
of Ummidl Razi, is wrong. We learn from 
Habib us-Siyar, vol. iii., Juz 4, p. 115, that 
the poet accompanied Durmish Khan to 
Herat, A.H. 927, returned two years later to 
his native place, and was shortly after 
murdered in his own house by a band of 
robbers. According to the Lubb ut-Tavarlkh, 
fol. 183, that event took place in Rabi' I., 
A.H. 930. 

P. 673 a. Zuhuri. It is stated in the Tarikh

a post which he held for nearly forty years.

Ghaib in Shiraz, died A.H. 1039. Tahir, 
Gude Catalogue, p. 92, Riyaz ush-Shu'arii, 
fol. 456. 

P. 687 b. " Ilahi." In the Mir'at i Jahan- 
numa, fol. 304, an earlier date is given for 
his death, viz. A.H. 1057. His patron, 
Zafar Khan, whose original name was Ahsan 
Ullah, called himself Ahsan in his verses. 
He is noticed as a poet in the Mir'at 
Jahannuma, fol. 305, the Riyaz ush-Shu'ara, 
fol. 57, and the Tazkhah of Sarkhwush, fol. 8. 

P. 692 a. Mahir, a poet of Kashmir, 
died A.H. 1089. See the Gude Catalogue, 
p. 092. 

P. 694 a. "Amila left his native place 
Balkli to cultivate poetry under Sa'ib 
(who died A.H. 1088; see p. 093 a). 
After visiting India, he settled in Shiraz, 
where he died. Trdiir Nasirabadi speaks of 
him (A.H. 1083) as dead. See fol. 303, and 
Riyaz ush-Shu'ara, fol. 313. 

P. 699 a. Burhan ud-Din Burhanpuri, 
Shaikh of the Shattari order, and disciple of 
Shaikh "Isa Sindhi, died in Burlianpur A.H. 
1083. 'Akil Kliiin collected his discourses, 
which he published under the title of Sama- 
rat ul-Hayat. See Mir'at ul-"Alam, fol. 448, 
and Riyaz ul-Auliya, fol. 101. 

P. 705 b. Mirza Abul-Ma'rdi Vizarat Khan

called Khwajali Brdja Samarkand!, died in

'Abd us-Samad Khan, who received the 
title of Saif ud-Daulah in reward of his vic- 
tory over the Sikhs, died A.H. 1150 as 
governor of Lahore. Ma'agir ul-Umara, 
fol. 320. 

P. 709 a. "Mukhlis was called from his 
native place, Mashhad." Read, Kashfm. 
P. 711 b. "Niycaz u Naz by Aziid." The 
2 B 2 



author should not be confounded with a later 
poet of the same name, Azad Balgrami. In 
a notice relating to him, but wrongly applied 
to the latter by Mr. Bland, Journal of the 
Royal As. Soc., vol. ix. p. 153, it is stated 
that the author of Naz u Niyaz " studied 
eloquence with Muhammad Aslam Srdim and 
ATith Shaikh Sa'd Ullah Gulshan, and that 
for a short time he was in attendance on. 
Muhammad A'zam Shah, and also in the 
service of Amir Khan, SCibahdar of Akbar- 
iibad," (see p. 400 b). The former of the 
poet's patrons, A'zam Shah, died A.H. 1119, 
consequently three years after the birth of 
Azad Balgrami. 

The real subject of the above notice is in 
all probability Mirza Arjumand Azad, son of 
the Kashmirian poet "Abd ul-Ghani Beg 
Kabul. One of his masters, Hnji Muham- 
mad Aslam Salim, also a native of Kashmir, 
was like himself attached to A'zam Shah, 
and died in his native country in the reign 
of Farrukhsiyar (Mirat i Aftabnuma, fol. 
141). The other, Shaikh Sa'd Ullah Gul- 
shan, died in Gujrat A.H. 1140 or 1141 
(Riyaz ush-Shu'ara, fol. 395, and Oude Cata- 
logue, p. 151). 

The Makalat ush-Shu'ara, from which the 
above notice is taken, vi^as written by 'Inayat 
Talab Khan Yavar, A.H. 1139—1143. It is 
described by Mr. Bland, I.e., p. 143. 

To the same Azad are probably due the 
continuation of Hamlab i Haidari (p. 705 a) 
and the Dilkusha Namah (p. 719 b). 

P. 712 b. "The Divan of Hasrat." It 
contains a chronogram on the death of 
the poet's father, Muhammad Sultan 'Alavi, 
i_jj!i£- jjsl^ iJjj ijj'ij deceased 

A.H. 1143. 

P. 714 a. Gir.amI, a Kashmirian poet, died 
A.H. 1155. See Ttirikh i Muhammadi, fol. 
295, and Riyaz ush-Shu"ara, fol. 896. 

P. 719 b. The Dilkusha Namah, composed 
A.H. 1131, has been wrongly ascribed to 
Azad Balgrami, who was only fifteen years of 

age at that time. See above, the addition to 
P. 711 b. 

Jiiya, whoso proper name was Mirza Darab 
'AH, was born, like his brother Giiya, in 
Kashmir of a Persian father, Mulla Samiri. 
He was an imitator of Sa'ib, a friend of the 
two poets, 'All Riza Tajalli and Muh. Sa'id 
Ashraf, and a favourite companion of Ibrilhim. 
Khan, who governed Kashmir during three 
terms of office from 1070 to 1116. Juya 
died. A.H. 1118. See Vaki'at i Kashmir, 
Add. 26,282, fol. 230', Tarikh i Muham- 
madi, fol. 241 a, and Riyaz ush-Shu'ara,

Khan lived on, according to the Tarikh i 
MuzafiFari, fol. 482, to a later period than 
above stated. He is said to have repaired to 
the court of Timtir Shiih, where he was still 
living at the time of that prince's death, i. e. 
A.H. 1007.

may be the same as Mir Muhammad Khan 
Sarvar, who wrote a Rekhtah Tazkirah A.H. 
1216. See Garcin de Tassy, Litter. Hind., 
vol. i. p. 50, vol. iii. p. 64, and the Oude

raf died A.H. 854 or 884. See Taki Kashi, 
Oude Catalogue, p. 20. 

P. 736 a. Add. 7796. The latter part of 
the MS., foil. 302 — 359, contains a fragment 
of the Tazkirah of Daulatshah extending 
from the second notice of class vi. to near 
the end of the work. In the margins of the 




same folios are written Jami's Tuhfat ul- 
Ahrar and Subnat ul-Abrar, imperfect at 
beginning and end. 

Maulana Kasim Kahi Miyankali Kabul!, 
whose original name was Abul-Kfisim Najm 
ud-DIn Muh., spent most of his life in India 
under Humayiin and Akbar, and died in 
Agra, at the age, it is said, of a hundred and 
ten years, A.H. 988. The date was fixed by 
his contemporary Faizi in the chronogram 
^j,\J}\ sUjl ^jd, quoted in Haft Iklim, 
fol. 571, and Mir'at ul-'Alam, fol. 491. A 
chronogram for A.H. 984, given in the Riyaz 
ush-Shu'ara, fol. 384, Tiz. clJj ij-r^ j' 
is stated by Bada'uni Yol. iii. p. 172, 
to have been composed by Ghazjii on a false 
rumour of the poet's death. See also Bloch- 
mann, Ain i Akbari, p. 566, and Haft

P. 736 b. "'Ismat of Bukhara, who died 
A.H. 829." A later date for the death of 
'Ismat, A.H. 840, is given in Habib us-Siyar, 
vol. iii., Juz 3, p. 91, where it is fixed by the 
chronogram lT-^-J . It is adopted in th€

The Arabic figures followed by a or 6 refer to the pages of the Catalogue, a and i designating respectively 
the first and second column of each page. Other numbers are Ilijrah dates. Coming after a man's name 
they relate to his birth (b.), to his death (d.), to the time about which he lived (c. = circa), or, in the case 
of a sovereign, to the beginning and end of his reign. A number placed in parenthesis after the title 
of a work is the date of its composition.
